On January 4, the IRS announced that the 2018 tax filing season would begin on January 29. The IRS set the opening date to ensure the security and readiness of key tax processing systems in advance of the opening and to assess the potential impact of recent tax legislation on 2017 tax returns.

 

We are currently working to finalize the forms and instructions to reflect the legislation which passed in late December. As a result, some shipments may come later than normal.

 

While most IRS tax forms, instructions and publications will be available electronically on IRS.gov by the beginning of the filing season (Jan. 29), the printing and distribution process for printed products takes longer to complete.

 

Also note, the nation’s tax deadline will be April 17 this year – so taxpayers will have two additional days to file beyond April 15.
