IRS Officially Begins Accepting 2016 Returns

As of Monday, Minnesota taxpayers can begin filing their state and federal income tax returns. The IRS said most of those returns will be filed electronically.

The filing deadline will be Tuesday, April 18 since the 15th falls on a Saturday and the 17th is Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in D.C.

What do tax filers need to know this season?

People won't usually realize they are victims until after they get a notice from the IRS or the state saying something went wrong with their tax return. All offices are appointment-only now.

"The EITC is a pro-work success", said Chuck Marr, director of federal tax policy at the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Taxpayers can visit INfreefile to see if they qualify for free e-filing and to get started. A number of new provisions are being added in 2017 to expand progress made during the past year. VITA offers free tax return preparation to taxpayers who earn $54,000 or less. "This helps ensure tax returns are accurate and improves tax refund turnaround times". The sites will be staffed with experts who are available to guide taxpayers through their tax preparation and filing.

That's three extra days to file your taxes, so make them count! A social security card for everybody on the tax return.

Tax preparers do a big chunk of America's tax returns - more than 80 million a year, according to the IRS - but if you're nervous about handing confidential information to someone in a largely unregulated field, you're not alone.

People impacted by the delay may not get their refunds until June.

Some changes to the IRS fraud prevention process might keep some of you from getting your refunds on time this year.
