IRS Encourages Taxpayers to File Soon, IR-2022-137

The IRS has reminded taxpayers still waiting to file their returns to file as soon as possible. Taxpayers can use special tools available on IRS.gov that can help them file. The online tools are available any time, so taxpayers can use them at their convenience.

Taxpayers can use IRS.gov to view the filing page to get information on most federal income tax topics, access the Interactive Tax Assistant tool for answers to many tax law questions, sign in to their IRS online account to view their balance and tax records, and find up-to-date information about their tax refunds using the Where’s My Refund? tool. Additionally, taxpayers can download the official IRS mobile app, IRS2Go, to check their refund status, make payments and more.

The IRS also advised taxpayers to check their withholding to avoid a tax surprise next filing season. The IRS Tax Withholding Estimator helps employees assess their income tax, credits, adjustments and deductions and determine whether they need to change their withholding.

Taxpayers who requested an extension to October 17 or missed the April 18 deadline can still prepare and e-file returns for free with IRS Free File, if they qualify.

Further, taxpayers can use the Taxpayer Assistance Center Locator tool to find a taxpayer assistance center. Taxpayers can find a variety of accessible products to help with the use of assistive technology, including screen reading software, refreshable Braille displays, and screen magnifying software at the online Alternative Media Center.

Finally, the IRS encouraged taxpayers to subscribe to IRS Tax Tips to get easy-to-read articles sent directly to their e-mail from the IRS.
