Tax Day 2022 in the United States is Monday, April 18, 2022. For last-minute filers, the date approaches like a whirlwind. If you find yourself in the income reporting hot seat, never fear. We have some easy-to-follow tax tips to finish this year’s process once and for all.
Electronic filing is faster
When you e-file, it typically takes 24 to 48 hours for the IRS to accept your return. If you file by mail, it will take much longer because of the time added for delivery. Additionally, for taxpayers who e-file and choose direct deposit, the IRS issues most refunds in fewer than 21 days. If you utilize mail to file, your refund could take up to 6-8 weeks.
