You can file your federal return when you have all your 2018 tax info (W-2s, 1099s, etc.) and all the tax forms and schedules in your return have been finalized (many IRS forms are ready now, and most should be ready by late January).

The IRS will start processing the backlog of e-filed returns on Monday, January 28, 2019.
