Learn the main tax deadlines for the tax season in the USA

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will start the 2022 tax season on 01/24. Warnings have already been issued for taxpayers to prepare for delays, due to the large accumulation of unprocessed statements during the Coronavirus pandemic period.

The National Taxpayer Advocate informed in a report to the United States Congress that there are over 8.6 million unprocessed individual income tax returns and 2.8 million corporate tax returns.

The reasons for the accumulation of tax returns are: the closing of offices, reduction in the number of associates and absence of officers for pandemic-related health reasons.

Check out the main dates taxpayers must be aware of to prepare for this tax season:

January 24: The IRS will start accepting individual income tax returns for 2021.

February 15: Qualified employees must complete a tax exemption W-4 Form and return it to their employees by February 15, if qualified.

April 18: The tax return season will end on this date for most individuals. Taxpayers may request an extension by completing Form 4868, online. If required, send the form by April 18 or print the form and send it to the IRS of the respective state, provided that posted by April 18.

October 17: Americans granted with extensions for their tax deadlines must send their tax returns by such deadline.
