What is the date to start filing 2017 taxes?

After January 1, 2018 and after every form and schedule on your tax return has been finalized.  Click on Review to view the forms and schedules that need to be finalized and the estimated date when available.

You must have all your W-2's and Form 1099's available before you can file a tax return.

The IRS will probably not be accepting any type of 2017 tax return until January 29, 2018

If your return includes the Earned Income Credit (EIC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit for a tax refund, the IRS will hold the tax refund until February 15, 2018 before releasing the refund later in February.
