Tax References

Technically, the first day to file your taxes is January 3, 2023. However, if you do it that early, the IRS won't accept or process them. You also likely won't have all the forms you need to complete your tax return yet, including your W-2 or 1099s for interest payments. IRS will begin accepting returns Monday, January 23, 2023.
