Where’s My Refund?
When does IRS accept tax returns in 2016
The IRS will begin accepting and processing tax returns on January 19, 2016.
When Can You File Taxes in 2016?
Most tax preparers will allow you to enter and submit your tax return beginning the week of January 4, 2016. You don’t need to wait for the IRS to start accepting tax returns to prepare, but you must have the proper forms and paperwork. Some forms are not available until mid January and some even later. When you submit your return before the IRS begins processing, it will sit in a “queue” and be held until the date that the IRS will officially accept tax returns. If you e-file early and it sits in queue, your return may be sent to the IRS early in a test batch. This has resulted in early direct deposits in the past, but also major glitches because it’s a test.

However, various websites with refund calendars for the 2016 tax season (2015 tax year) have been updated with 2016 direct deposit and check mailing dates.
