For millions of Americans, the individual income tax refund is the largest payday that they have all year. So it is understandable that many are eager to be the first in line to file for their federal income tax refund. If you are among them, here is what you need to know:
The first day to file is one week away on January 19th
It makes sense to prepare your forms early even if the forms can not be filed before January 19th.
Make shire that your lack of required documentation does not slow down the filing.
If you use a tax preparer, now is a good time to contact them before they get busy.
