Your 2023 taxes


Tax season officially begins on Monday, January 29, 2023 for filing your 2023 tax year returns.

For most individual taxpayers across the nation, Tax Day is Monday, April 15, 2024. This is the date that your tax return must be submitted electronically (e-filed) or post-marked to be considered filed on time by the IRS. If you request an automatic six month extension, you must file your return by Tuesday, October 15, 2024. Since this does not extend the time to pay, you would owe interest on any tax due and penalties may apply.

A few exceptions apply to the filing deadlines: 

  • If you live in Maine or Massachusetts, you have until Wednesday, April 17th, 2024, because of the Patriot’s Day and Emancipation Day holidays. 
  • You have an additional two months (until June 17th, 2024) to file and pay if you are a US citizen or resident alien and either:
    • You live outside the US and your main place of business is outside the US or
    • You are on duty in the military or naval service outside the US.
Interest would be charged from the original due date on any unpaid tax. If you still needed more time to file, you may file Form 4868 to apply for an additional four months (until October 15th, 2024) however, this would not further extend your time to pay any tax due so interest and penalties may apply.
  • You may also qualify under any federally declared disaster relief deadline extensions.

State agencies may have different filing deadlines since they do not automatically adopt the Federal regulations. Please refer to the State Tax Resources link for further information. 

For businesses, Forms W-2s and 1099s are due by January 31, 2024.
