Filing an Income Tax Return

 

An Income Tax Return is a form used to report income, withholding taxes, expenses, and other tax information.  Tax returns are filed with the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) and/or with the state Dept of Revenue.  Tax returns are filed annually, at the beginning of each new calendar year and are typically due by April 15th.  You cannot file a tax return before the completion of the tax year.  For example: you will file your 2020 income tax return beginning in Jan 2021 through April 15, 2021.
