What is the first day to file taxes in 2015?

calendarThe first day to file taxes is January 20, 2015. The IRS begins accepting and processing returns on January 20, 2015

When 2014 comes to an end and we get through the holidays, taxpayers who file early begin asking “what is the first day I can file my tax return?”.  About this time, those of us who used a tax preparation company in the past, such as H&R Block or TurboTax, may get an email with updated filing information, password reminders and such.  Stay tuned here to get the latest news as the 2014 tax season comes to a close, we will watch and post updates for 2015 refund schedules, key dates, etc.  My personal prediction is that we will, like usual, be able to enter our information into e-file systems online as early as the 1st week of January 2014 and even hit “submit”.  But remember, that just puts your return into queue and it will not be processed until the IRS begins “accepting” return in 2015.

    Hello, Im in the same boat filed Jan 8 accepted the 12th and still processing return. I heard TurboTax had errors last year, though I wasn’t one hoping not the same this year.

    @tamara mallery: I used free tax usa and it said mine was accepted on jan 14, however the WMR status still says it’s being processed. Do you know if the IRS has a weekend shift to continue processing our refunds? It says it’s updated overnight but yet mine is still being processed… No change as of this morning…….1-24-15
