The IRS began accepting 2022 tax returns for processing on January 23, 2023. The filing deadline for 2022 returns is April 18, 2023.
If you have a federal tax refund coming, you can track it by using the Where’s My Refund tool (link below) once the IRS has accepted your return. Many taxpayers who file electronically and request direct deposit will receive their refunds within 21 days. However, the IRS will not issue refunds resulting from the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) until February 28 or later.
To avoid processing delays, make sure that your return is complete and free from errors. A tax professional can help you file an accurate return electronically and set up direct deposit, so that your refund comes as quickly as possible.
