WASHINGTON ― The Internal Revenue Service announced today that the nation’s tax season will begin Monday, Jan. 23, 2017 and reminded taxpayers claiming certain tax credits to expect a longer wait for refunds. 

 

The IRS will begin accepting electronic tax returns that day, with more than 153 million individual tax returns expected to be filed in 2017. The IRS again expects more than four out of five tax returns will be prepared electronically using tax return preparation software.

 

Many software companies and tax professionals will be accepting tax returns before Jan. 23 and then will submit the returns when IRS systems open. The IRS will begin processing paper tax returns at the same time. There is no advantage to filing tax returns on paper in early January instead of waiting for the IRS to begin accepting e-filed returns.

 

 The Internal Revenue Service today urged any taxpayer with an expiring Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) and a need to file a return in  the upcoming filing season to file a renewal application in the next few weeks to avoid refund and processing delays. In addition, the IRS encouraged people to check their renewal application, Form W-7, carefully before filing and offered tips for avoiding common errors being seen.
