Tax season has begun! The IRS can help you find answers to common tax questions, so we’ve consolidated these resources to guide you.
About Tax Season 2024
Note: The information below is about federal taxes and returns for individual taxpayers (including self-employed taxpayers) only and does not include information on business taxes or state income taxes.
When Is Tax Season 2024?
IRS will begin accepting and processing individual tax returns on January 29, 2024, and will continue through the April 15th filing deadline, though some taxpayers may continue to file their returns after this date.
Tax Day 2024: When Is the Filing Deadline?
For individual taxpayers, the deadline is April 15, 2024, a Monday. That means that any digital filing must be completed by or on this date and that paper filings sent by mail must be postmarked by or on this date with the correct address and sufficient postage.
Taxpayers living in Maine or Massachusetts have until April 17, 2024, to file. The extended deadline is due to the Patriot’s Day and Emancipation Day holidays. If a taxpayer resides in a federally declared disaster area, they also may have additional time to file.
