Presidents' Day

What you need to know now about the upcoming tax season

It's a new year and time to put the last one to bed, which means filing your taxes.

The Internal Revenue Service says to expect a few changes when the nation's individual income tax filing season opens on Jan. 23.

Here are some of the changes you should be aware of:

NEW DATE: Taxes are usually due on April 15, but this year that falls on a Saturday. And Emancipation Day, a holiday in Washington, D.C., will be observed on Monday, April 17.

So that pushes the nation's deadline to file returns and pay any amount due to April 18.

You don't have to wait until then to meet with a tax professional or start the process though.
