Tax filing season starts as IRS begins accepting returns
30 Jan 2024
The Internal Revenue Service successfully opened the 2024 tax season last week by accepting and processing federal individual tax returns as the agency continues focusing on expanding options to help taxpayers.
The IRS expects more than 146 million individual tax returns for 2023 to be filed this filing season, which has a deadline of April 15, 2024.
With the start of the 2024 filing season, the IRS will be extending hours of service in nearly 250 Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TACs) across the country, providing additional help to people. The IRS will also be working to continue improvements on its phone service as well as expanding online tools. The “Where’s My Refund?” tool on IRS.gov will add more details for taxpayers checking on the status of their tax refund.
