The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced recently that the nation’s 2018 tax season is underway and reminds taxpayers about claiming certain tax credits that refunds will not be available until late February. The IRS began accepting tax returns on January 29, 2018. Although the IRS accepts both electronic and paper tax returns, paper returns will begin processing later in mid-February. The IRS strongly encourages people to file their tax returns electronically for faster refunds. Choosing e-file and direct deposit for refunds remains the fastest and safest way to file an accurate income tax return and receive a refund.
