This Monday, the IRS started receiving tax returns, marking the beginning of the 2023 tax season. You should know a few things about income reporting, new tax credits, and possibly lesser tax refunds in 2022 before you submit your tax returns, whether you’re an early filer or wait until closer to Tax Day 2023 (i.e., April 18).
Tax Season 2023
In the first place, it is now time to file tax returns. On January 23rd, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) started receiving tax returns. According to the Internal Revenue Service, they anticipate accepting over 168 million tax returns this year, with many people choosing to file their taxes as soon as possible.
When you file early, ensure you have everything you need. Ensure your documents are in order and your taxpayer identification number and PIN are correct before filing your taxes.
More than 5,000 new IRS employees have been hired in the agency’s customer service department, which is noteworthy in and of itself. Because of the Inflation Prevention Act, the Internal Revenue Service has been able to hire more people to serve taxpayers during tax season better. The IRS insists that its website, IRS.gov, remains the quickest place to acquire tax refund details and answers to frequently asked tax issues.

Free File Taxes
It’s free to file your taxes electronically in 2022 if you made less than $73,000. Seven service providers are involved in the IRS Free File program, each with its eligibility requirements and a lineup of available services. Since January 13th, taxpayers have had access to IRS Free File. Before the IRS started taking returns on January 23, your Free File supplier probably held onto your recovery while you waited.

April 15th, 2023, Tax Day
In 2019, you have until Tuesday, April 18, to file your 2022 tax return or request an extension to file and pay any due taxes. (The expected due date of April 15 has been changed because it is a weekend this year.)
Personal and corporate tax returns are extended until May 15, 2023, for those who live in areas hit hard by natural disasters such as floods, storms, wildfires, etc. The deadline has been extended until 2023 for disaster victims in Alabama, California, and Georgia.
1099-K Reporting and Side Job Income
The so-called $600 rule has resulted in many misunderstandings, but the IRS has delayed its effect until 2022. This month, millions of consumers who received at least $600 in payments through a third-party network (like PayPal, Square, Venmo, Stripe, etc.) for goods and services would have been required to file a Form 1099-K under the proposed rule.
In addition, you may still get a 1099-K for 2022 before January 31st, even though the $600 rule has been postponed. Verify that the details on the 1099-K you receive are consistent with what you have on file. Contact the external payment system that issued the 1099-K if you have questions or concerns.
The Internal Revenue Service requires you to disclose all taxable income on your federal income tax return regardless of whether or not you get a Form 1099-K.
New 2023 Tax Credit
In 2022, did you take the plunge and buy an all-electric car? A few modifications have been made to the federal EV tax credit. Tax credits for new electric vehicles (EVs) of up to $7,500 are available under the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), although credits for select pre-owned EVs are reduced.
If you purchased an EV before the IRA took effect (before August 16, 2022), and the EV qualifies for the previous EV tax credit under the old rules, you can claim that credit under the old rules. However, you cannot claim without a legally valid sales contract.
The standard requirements for receiving the $7,500 EV tax credit still apply if you buy and take ownership of your EV between August 16, 2022, and December 31, 2022. Still, a final EV assembly must occur in North America.
Before submitting your application for the electric vehicle (EV) tax credit to be used for an EV placed in operation in 2022, you should ensure that the EV you purchased satisfies the final assembly criteria.
Smaller Tax Refunds in 2023?
Finally, the IRS has issued a warning that some 2023 tax refunds may be smaller than expected due to changes in the tax code that took effect in 2022. The increased Child Tax Credit is one example of an eliminated policy.
In 2021, the maximum amount of the Child Tax Benefit was raised from $2,000 to $3,600, and a portion of the credit was distributed in advance during that year. Since the Kid Tax Credit has been reset at $2,000 per child, many parents will have a smaller deduction for their children in 2022. For some, this will result in a lesser tax refund in 2023, if any at all.
In addition, the increased standard deduction in 2022 makes it more challenging for some taxpayers to lower their tax burden through charitable giving. (If you itemize your taxes, the $600 above-the-line deduction for charity donations available during the epidemic will no longer be available in 2022.)
