IRS now accepting tax returns

Not only is it the season of love with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, but as of today, it’s officially the season of tax filing.

That’s right, February 12th marks the first day the IRS begins accepting and processing tax returns for the year 2020.

While the deadline to file your taxes isn’t until April 15th, there are many benefits to doing so early.

A local financial planner tells News 25 an early filing would also be a good idea given the hiccups of 2020. Kerry Milligan with Strojny Financial Services said, “There’s general advice every year. This year is a little different with COVID and Hurricane Zeta, but in a normal year the advice I give is to have all of your documents because every year documents are coming out later and later.”

Another benefit to filing early is getting back your return faster than you normally would.
