2015 Filing Season to Start on January 20

The start of the 2015 individual tax filing will not end up being delayed due to Congress’ December enactment of the extender legislation, the IRS announced in News Release IR-2014-119.

The IRS will be accepting electronic returns and processing paper returns on January 20 according to the release.  The IRS also made no mention of a staggered start of the season as was true recently, where some taxpayers were unable to file initially and had to wait until a later date in tax season to begin filing.
