About this Deal
The Internal Revenue Service recently announced that the 2021 tax season will start on Friday, February 12, 2021. This is the date that the IRS will begin accepting and processing 2020 tax year returns.
The February 12 start date allows the IRS time to update its systems following the December 27 tax law changes that provided a second round of Economic Impact Payments. These updates will ensure that eligible taxpayers can receive any outstanding stimulus money as a Recovery Rebate Credit when they file their 2020 tax return. Without these updates in place, there could be a delay in issuing refunds to taxpayers.
