2014 Tax Season Date

2014 tax season date is January 31, 2014.

Tax season will start later this year due to the 16 day government shut down.

The fastest way to receive your refund is through e-file.

“The government closure meant the IRS had to change the original opening date from Jan. 21 to Jan. 31, 2014. The 2014 date is one day later than the 2013 filing season opening, which started on Jan. 30, 2013, following January tax law changes made by Congress on Jan. 1 under the American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA). The extensive set of ATRA tax changes affected many 2012 tax returns, which led to the late January opening.”

With the new 2014 tax season date you can still come into our office now to get your income return

prepared before January 31st.

Having a later 2014 tax season date our software will hold the returns until January 31st.

“The IRS cautioned that it will not process any tax returns before Jan. 31, so there is no advantage to filing on paper before the opening date.”

Don’t let anyone fool you the IRS will not process returns before that date.

You will need all of your tax documents to file your income taxes this includes your W’2.

The April 15th deadline to file your income taxes on time is still in place.

You may still request a 6 month extension to file your taxes by filing form 4868.

Always remember that delays are possible with the new 2014 tax season date.

Many people will have sent in their returns to be processed on January 31st.

Make sure when you get ready to file your income taxes in 2014 that you received all your tax


Be patient with your preparer and the IRS there may be a system overload.
