Key Tips For Navigating Your 2023 Tax Return Smoothly

The IRS has some important reminders for taxpayers who haven’t filed yet. The deadline for most taxpayers to file and pay their 2023 federal tax is April 15, 2024.

Taxpayers should file the 2023 tax return after they receive all their proper tax documents, or they risk making a mistake that could cause delays.

Prepare to file

  • Review income documents carefully. If any of the information is inaccurate or missing, taxpayers should contact the payer right away for a correction or to ensure they have the taxpayer’s current mailing or email address.

  • Organize tax records so they can easily prepare a complete and accurate tax return.

  • Check eligibility for deductions or credits. Taxpayers should understand which credits and deductions make sense for their tax situation and which records they need to show their eligibility.

  • Create an IRS Online Account to securely access information about their federal tax account, including payments, tax records and more.

  • Renew their Individual Taxpayer Identification Number or ITIN it if it's expired and is needed on a U.S. federal tax return. If taxpayers don't renew an expired ITIN, the IRS can still accept their return, but it may delay processing.
