The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on January 30, 2022. They will begin processing returns in mid-February. The income tax deadline this year will be Monday, April 18, 2022 for the Federal Government and Tuesday, April 19, 2022 for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
If you are not already doing so, the IRS recommends direct deposit of your refund. It is the fastest and most efficient way to receive your refund. If you are not already doing this and wish to start, please contact the office with your bank routing number and account number.
Families who received advance child tax credit payments in 2021 will need to reconcile the amount they received with the eligible amount when filing their tax return this year. Beginning in January, 2022, the IRS will send Letter 6419 with the total amount of advance child tax credit payments received in 2021. We will need that letter to complete your tax return.
