A December 9 article posted by the IRS said that starting January 23, 2017, the national tax season will begin, which will cater to over 153 million taxpayers who will file their returns. The deadline for filing is April 18, 2017.
According to reports, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is expecting many taxpayers next year will use the convenience of electronic filing in submitting their forms. The April 18 tax filing deadline was set because the traditional deadline of April 15 falls on a Saturday, while April 17 is Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia, which is a legal holiday. Regarding a tax refund, the IRS is expecting they will be more efficient in the numbers of refunds released within 21 days.
