Tax season will begin Monday, January 29, 2018.
The filing deadline to submit 2017 tax returns is Tuesday, April 17, 2018.
Important note from the IRS: The IRS reminds taxpayers that, by law, the IRS cannot issue refunds claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) before mid-February. While the IRS will process those returns when received, it cannot issue related refunds before mid-February. The IRS expects the earliest EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available in taxpayer bank accounts or on debit cards starting on Feb. 27, 2018, if they chose direct deposit and there are no other issues with the tax return.
OCLS will again serve as a venue for income tax help during tax season. AARP Volunteers will provide free income tax assistance at various library locations. Attendees will need to have a valid ID, Social Security Card, and any tax forms necessary to complete their return. Attendees will be seen on a first come, first served basis.
