When can I file taxes this year?

You can start preparing your tax return any time.  Some forms are not finalized so you may not be able to e-file for awhile yet.  The IRS is not accepting returns until January 29.

Employers, banks, brokers, Social Security, etc. have until the end of January/early February to issue the documents you need, so wait until you have everything before you file.
