January 10, 2022

The 2022 tax season starts Monday, Jan. 24, when the IRS will begin accepting and processing 2021 tax returns.

The Jan. 24 start date for individual filers allows the IRS time to perform programming and testing critical to ensure the system runs smoothly.

Updated programming helps ensure eligible people can claim the proper amount of child tax credit and claim any remaining stimulus money as a recovery rebate credit when they file their 2021 return, the IRS explained.

The filing deadline for most taxpayers is Monday, April 18.
