When Can You File Your 2016 Federal And State Taxes In New York?
Are you starting to wonder when you can file your federal and state taxes here in New York? When will you get your return checks?
The IRS has confirmed that they will start accepting electronic tax return filings (e-File) on Monday, January 23rd 2017. Final tax returns are due by Tuesday, April 18th; unless a 6-month extension is approved. Just remember, just because you file early in January, doesn't mean anyone is looking at it until the 23rd:
An important point to note is that while you can file your taxes anytime after the beginning of the year, the IRS will not process any returns (paper or electronic) until IRS e-File goes live. This includes returns filed via the main tax software providers or directly via the IRS website for lower income filers. The IRS also reiterated that filing your taxes electronically is the most accurate way to file a tax return and the fastest way to get a refund. It is expected that more than 150 million tax returns will be e-filed in 2017."
Once your return is accepted by the IRS, the IRS processes your refund based on the IRS E-file Refund Cycle Chart. Get more details by Clicking Here.
