We will update you here as soon as the day is published for when the IRS begins accepting and processing returns in 2014.
When 2013 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 2013 tax season comes to a close, we will watch and post updates for 2014 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 2014…which leads me to place my bet on 1/26/14 being the official day the IRS begins accepting return in 2014. Let us know here what information you uncover (of course take a breather from the stress of refund hunting for the rest of the year, but check back early in 2014).
