The IRS has yet to announce when you can e-file 2014 taxes in 2015.
Last year, on December 18, the IRS announced when the 2014 tax season would begin. This year, the IRS will probably announce the 2015 tax season start date around the same time.
Last year, the IRS e-file date was set at January 31, 2014 for filers to e-file a 2013 tax return. If you think back to last year, you may recall the hectic government shut down. That shut down was directly linked to the delay to the start of the tax season.
This year, you can take a guess that tax season 2015 will begin sometime between the middle and end of January. That means, you’ll probably be able to have your 2014 taxes e-filed by the start of February.
The start of the e-file 2014 tax season was one of the latest on record. Cross your fingers that the 2015 season won’t follow suit.
Keep in mind that once the IRS announces the official date for e-file to begin, we’ll update this page with the new information. Bookmark this page and come back in December for the official date you’ll be able to e-file your 2014 taxes.
Regardless of when the 2015 tax season begins, tax day (aka the last day to file a 2014 tax return) remains at April 15th.
As for how fast you’ll be able to get your tax refund once your 2014 tax return is e-filed, the IRS has spent time making improvements to the e-file system so that it’s faster for everyone. That means, if you e-file your 2014 taxes with RapidTax, you’ll be able to file quickly and receive your tax refund within 21 days.
You’ll also be happy to hear that RapidTax posts the current year tax return application early, allowing you to enter your tax information before the start of the tax season. Then, when the season officially begins, your return will be among the first e-filed to the IRS.
