Read the Article

Monday, Jan. 23, 2023, is the beginning of the nation’s 2023 tax season; on this date, the IRS will begin accepting and processing tax year 2022 returns.

More than 168 million individual tax returns are expected to be filed, with the vast majority of those coming before the April 18 tax deadline; in fact, there are three extra days to file this year due to the calendar.

April 18 tax filing deadline in 2023

The filing deadline to submit 2022 tax returns, or an extension to file and pay tax owed, is Tuesday, April 18, 2023, for most taxpayers. By law, Washington, D.C., holidays impact tax deadlines for everyone in the same way as federal holidays. The due date is April 18, instead of April 15, because of the weekend and the District of Columbia’s Emancipation Day holiday, which falls on Monday, April 17. Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until Monday, Oct. 16, 2023, to file.

Key filing season dates

There are several important dates taxpayers should keep in mind for this year’s filing season:

  • Jan. 13: IRS Free File opens
  • Jan. 17: Due date for tax year 2022 fourth quarter estimated tax payment.
  • Jan. 23: IRS begins 2023 tax season and starts accepting and processing individual 2022 tax returns.
  • Jan. 27: Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Day to raise awareness of valuable tax credits available to many people – including the option to use prior-year income to qualify.
  • April 18: National due date to file a 2022 tax return or request an extension and pay tax owed due to the Emancipation Day holiday in Washington, D.C.
  • Oct. 16: Due date to file for those requesting an extension on their 2022 tax returns.

  1. I efiled re my 2022 federal and state form. All was ok til I got an email from Schwab on 2-28-23 that indicated changes to the 1099 side of the tax. My issue is whether I need to amend my filing when I don’t know what’s changed or wait for an audit? I filed on 2-27-23 and downloaded the Schwab info which the tax took without question. All this was done on 2-27-23. Wonder why Schwab didn’t prevent the download of their update at the time indicating they were going to make changes. This would have helped greatly. Advice please? Thanks.
