As every year, the tax season in the United States has an end date. Therefore, the IRS will stop accepting Tax Returns as of that day. This means that citizens obliged to send this tax return may have serious problems if they do not do it on time. While it is true that we can request an extension of time, the IRS may not grant it.
In order to avoid problems with the IRS, the best solution is to send the Tax Return on time. And for this, the Internal Revenue Service warns us that we only have 3 weeks left to send all our documentation. During these three weeks we still have plenty of time to complete the documents and send them, but we must not forget it.
Also, in the case of receiving a Tax Refund check from the IRS, it will take longer to receive it if we take longer to send it. This is something that not all citizens take into account when it comes to delaying the sending of the Tax Return. The rule is very simple to remember: the sooner we send our Tax Return, the sooner we will receive our Tax Refund from the IRS. Have you already sent your Tax Return?
What is the deadline to send the Tax Return to the IRS?
The 2023 Tax Season, pertaining to 2022 taxes, started last January 23rd. From that moment on, the IRS started receiving Tax Returns to check that everything was in order. The deadline to send our Tax Return will be next April 18th, just three weeks from now.

We have until that day to send our complete documents with all our income and expenses for the year. This way we will be able to determine if we will actually receive a Tax Refund from the IRS or not. Remember that you can request an extension of time in case you need it.
Where is my Tax Refund?
The IRS takes about 21 days on average to issue a Tax Refund. But that means we need to send in our Tax Return as soon as possible. Without all documents complete, the IRS cannot issue any kind of stimulus check. It’s easy to start the process, so it’s wise to do it as soon as possible.
If you have already submitted your Tax Return, you can find out what is happening with your Tax Refund at any time through the IRS’s own website. It is an easy way to know if you will receive your check soon or not.
In order to receive your Tax Refund as soon as possible, the ideal is to activate Direct Deposit, as well as to send the documents online. It is the fastest way to expedite all IRS related processes.
