Mark Your Calendars: 2019 Tax Filing Season Opens Jan. 27

Start gathering your paperwork. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that the tax season will open on Monday, Jan, 27, when it will begin accepting paper and electronic 2019 tax returns.

The IRS expects to process more than 150 million individual tax returns, with most of the returns filed before the April 15 tax-filing deadline.

NTEU is proud to represent the hardworking IRS employees who not only collect taxes, but educate taxpayers, answer questions and work one-on-one with people who need extra help paying their fair share. At the same time, IRS employees will be working to help protect against tax-related identity theft.

While the IRS got a much-needed funding boost in the 2020 spending legislation, NTEU continues to strongly advocate for an increase in IRS staffing so that taxpayers can get the help they need and the agency can close in on the $458 billion tax gap.
