IRS News Release Announces Start Date for the 2017 Electronic Filing Season

In a News Release issued by the IRS announced the start date for the 2017 filing season will be January 23, 2017. While this is a good piece of news for taxpayers as we were anticipating that the filing season would start in early February 2017, the IRS reminded taxpayers claiming certain tax credits to expect longer wait for refunds.

Additionally, the IRS informed everyone that the deadline for filing your taxes in 2017 will be Tuesday, April 18, 2017, rather than the traditional April 15 date. In 2017, April 15 falls on a Saturday, and this would usually move the filing deadline to the following Monday – April 17. However, Emancipation Day – a legal holiday in the District of Columbia – will be observed on that Monday, which pushes the nation’s filing deadline to Tuesday, April 18, 2017. Under the tax law, legal holidays in the District of Columbia affect the filing deadline across the nation.

New Private Debt Collection Program to Begin
Next Spring; IRS to Contract with Four
Agencies; Taxpayer Rights Said to be Protected

WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service announced today that it plans to begin private collection of certain overdue federal tax debts next spring and has selected four contractors to implement the new program.

The new program, authorized under a federal law enacted by Congress last December, enables these designated contractors to collect, on the government’s behalf, outstanding inactive tax receivables. As a condition of receiving a contract, these agencies must respect taxpayer rights including, among other things, abiding by the consumer protection provisions of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
