2021 Tax Season Overview: Important Deadlines, E-Filing to Start in February

The IRS announced that E-filing will open for 2020 tax returns on February 12th, kicking off the 2021 tax season. And like last year, this year will be a chaotic one for the IRS. So, it’s best to start early. Here’s what you need to know:


When are Taxes Due?

Individual and corporate tax returns for tax year 2020 are due by April 15th, 2021. For partnerships and S Corporations, the deadline is March 15th, 2021.


Thanks to delays associated with Covid-19, it’s important as ever to get ahead of these deadlines and file early. As we’ve covered previously, the IRS is still behind on processing 2019 tax returns – particularly those that were mailed physically.

To get ahead of the pack and ensure your refund arrives on time, file as early as possible, and file electronically (E-filing).
