Can You File Taxes Early in 2023?

Yes! The IRS will start accepting tax returns as early as the end of January 2023. While our clients are not required to submit documents early, clients must submit all documents by Wednesday, March 15 to ensure we file by the individual deadline of April 18th, 2023.

The Benefits of Filing Taxes Early

Here are a few major benefits of filing your taxes early:

Avoid processing delays
Faster tax refund
Eliminates the need to file an extension 
Prevents money wasted in fines and penalties
Gives you extra time to pay taxes you owe
Protects your refunds from identity thieves

Tips to Ensure Timely Completion and Filing:

Here are a few tips to ensure we can complete your return in a timely manner: 

1. Submit All Documents

New this year, we will not be scheduling out individual dates for document drop off. As soon as you can, please submit all documents to us via email, client portal or dropping off at the office if you have hard copies. The turnaround time is shorter with more planning opportunities the earlier you can provide documents. However, clients must submit by Wednesday, March 15 to ensure we file by the individual deadline. We will continue to file courtesy extensions for all clients who have not finalized their return by the tax deadlines.

2. Fill Out Current Year Tax Organizer

​​We require all clients, new and old, to fill out a current year tax organizer to ensure we are capturing all tax law changes.

3. Organize Documents

The better organized your source documents are, the quicker we can start on your return. If sending electronically, PDFs are preferable. We recommend downloading the app Genius Scan which uses your phone camera to scan and create PDFs.

  • Android:


  • Apple:


Note: If dropping off hard copies, please remove documents from sealed envelopes

4. Completing rental and business worksheets

Completing rental and business worksheets decreases turnaround time.

5. Next Steps

  • Once we have your source documents, you will be added to our project queue, and your tax preparer will reach out if further information is needed.
  • When your return is complete, you will receive a summary email from your tax preparer with the results. As always, a 20-minute meeting to review your completed tax return will be available if requested. This will ensure you get the most out of your consultation by focusing on the results and opportunities for the coming year.
  • The operations team will then follow up with further instructions on how to sign, file your return, and pay any taxes owed.
