For all you early birds, the IRS will begin accepting tax returns on January 29, 2018.

If you haven’t e-filed in the past the IRS suggests you choose e-file and direct deposit. It’s the fastest and safest way to file. Nine out of 10 refunds are processed in less than 3 weeks!  So be aware that mailing paper returns will delay your processing until at least mid-February.

Also a reminder that if you claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC), by law the IRS isn’t allowed to issue refunds before mid-February.
