2021 Tax Filing Season Begins Feb. 12

The Internal Revenue Service announced that the nation’s tax season will start on Friday, February 12, 2021, when the tax agency will begin accepting and processing 2020 tax year returns.

The February 12 start date for individual tax return filers allows the IRS time to do additional programming and testing of IRS systems following the December 27 tax law changes that provided a second round of Economic Impact Payments and other benefits.

Tax software companies are stating tax returns submitted before this date will be held in queue and will be transmitted to the IRS as soon as the IRS is ready to process.

CDM Business & Tax Services is available to prepare your individual or business tax return. Contact Us to make an appointment!
