First Day to e-File, Jan 23rd
The IRS has confirmed that they will start accepting electronic tax return filings (e-File) from Monday, January 23rd 2017. Final tax returns are due by Tuesday, April 18th; unless a 6-month extension is approved. This is three days later than the standard April 15th date, because the 15th falls on a weekend this year and Monday, April 17th is the Emancipation Day holiday.
