You can start filing your 2019 taxes any time after the first day of 2020. However, the IRS will not begin processing returns, paper or electronic, until IRS e-file goes live later in the month.
The IRS’s electronic submission portal E-file opens up toward the end of January (date to be announced), which is also when the IRS will start processing returns. Any paper returns that have been submitted before this date will be processed when E-file is live.
If you receive a W-2 from your employers, it should be on its way to you by the end of January 2020. If you haven’t received any information by then, it’s time to get in touch with supervisors or HR.
If you are a business, the filing deadline for 2019 W-2s and 1099 forms (including Form 1099-MISC) is January 31, 2020.
You can file for an extension any time before the tax year deadline, up until the due date of April 15th. Remember that when you receive an extension, you are still responsible for paying any estimated taxes you owe by the federal due date, or you can end up paying additional interest or late fees.
If you did not receive an extension for your taxes, then you’ll need to file by the due date. However, if you notice, the due date for 2020 is actually two days later than the typical April 15th filing date, as that falls over the weekend.
Arkansas state returns also have a due date of April 15th, both for filing extensions and for filing your returns.
For any US citizens living abroad, returns need to be filed and taxes must be paid by June 15th. This is also the deadline to request a four-month extension for any filers residing abroad.
Make sure you don’t miss any filing dates by getting a head start on your taxes.
If you were approved for an extension by April 15th, your return must be submitted by October 15th. The same goes for individuals or resident aliens living abroad who were approved for an extension in June.
