The deadline this year lands on April 18, 2022.

Due to Emancipation Day, the date was pushed back from the usual April 15 deadline.

The average refund Americans saw in 2021 was $2,775, up 11% from 2020.

Tax returns with the IRS in 2022

The IRS started accepting returns in January.

The 2021 tax year should bring in over 160 million returns.

Last year the IRS did not accept returns until Feb. in order to prepare for changes like the stimulus check.

While the U.S. has set a deadline of April 18, 2022, some states have different deadlines.

Maine and Massachusetts celebrate Patriot’s Day on April 18, so their tax deadline will be April 19.

If you fail to file your taxes on time you may face a failure to pay penalty and could owe 5%-25% of your unpaid taxes.

After 60 days you’ll owe 100% of what you owe in taxes as a fine or $435, whichever is less.

The IRS can add interest to your unpaid penalties.
