The 2012 filing season has begun with new filing dates and a new filing rule for taxpayers and tax preparers.

E-filing officially begins January 17, 2012

The filing Season deadline for 1040 tax returns and extensions is Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until Oct. 15 to file their 2012 tax returns.

New IRS rule says that no tax return shall be e-filed until the taxpayer has received all of their expected tax forms (eg. W-2, 1099 etc). The deadline for issuers to send the forms is January 31st. Therefore, taxpayers may not receive their forms until February.
