Jan. 23 Start Date - April 18 Deadline

January 12, 2023


The Internal Revenue Service scheduled the official date for the opening of tax season, with Monday, Jan. 23, 2023, the day when the agency will begin accepting and processing 2022 tax year returns.

More than 168 million individual tax returns are anticipated to be filed, with most of them coming before the April 18 tax deadline. People will get three extra days to file their taxes thanks to the usual date, April 15, falling on a Saturday, and April 17 being a holiday in Washington, D.C.

With the three prior tax seasons significantly affected by the pandemic, the IRS has taken extra steps for 2023 to improve service for taxpayers. As part of the August passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, the agency has hired more than 5,000 new telephone assistors and added more in-person staff to help support taxpayers.
