Filing taxes safely and correctly ahead of the April 18th deadline
The Internal Revenue Service kicked off the 2022 tax filing season Monday.
They are sending an urgent reminder to taxpayers to take extra precaution this year to file an accurate tax return electronically to help speed up refunds.
Due to the pandemic, the IRS is still facing a significant backlog from last year.
To help smooth the process out, they’re asking for people to carefully review their taxes for accuracy before filing.
You should also file electronically with direct deposit, if at all possible. IRS Commissioner Church Rettig said, “Filing on paper will mean an extensive delay in the receipt of your refund. Please file electronically, use tax software, a trusted tax professional, or through free-file on IRS.gov.”
The deadline for filing taxes is April 18th.
