AMERICANS can start filing their taxes in as little as 12 days, but experts warn that getting your refund may take longer.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced that tax season will begin on January 24 and end on April 18.
The IRS’ workload has increased in recent years due to budget cuts and stimulus programs.
Treasury officials predict a “frustrating season” for taxpayers, owing to delays caused by the pandemic, according to the Washington Post.
“By definition, no matter how much more efficient you are, you can’t lose 25% of the workforce and assume you can do the same volume of work,” John Koskinen, the IRS commissioner under former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, told the Washington Post.
“It’s a problem that affects everyone — information technology, revenue agents, and phone operators.”
