Today’s IRS release—IR-2015-139 [PDF 84 KB]—reports that the IRS will begin accepting individual electronic returns on January 19, 2016.

The filing deadline for 2015 individual income tax returns this year will be Monday, April 18, 2016, rather than the traditional April 15 date (because Washington, D.C. celebrates Emancipation Day on Friday, April 15, thereby causing the deadline to be the following Monday). For taxpayers in Maine and Massachusetts, the filing deadline will be Tuesday, April 19, 2016, because of the observance of the Patriots Day holiday.
