On January 24, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) began receiving and processing federal income tax returns and giving out stimulus checks for the previous tax year. Nearly all taxpayers will file their taxes online between now and Monday, April 18, the deadline for most Americans to apply for the stimulus check. (Due to the Patriots’ Day holiday in Maine and Massachusetts, taxpayers in those states have until Tuesday, April 19, 2022, to submit their returns.) Those seeking an extension in 2022 must submit their request by Monday, October 17, 2022.)

File For Your Stimulus Checks Securely

The following are the most important papers and details you’ll require:

-Your SSN or Tax Identification number, as well as the details about your spouse

-In 2021, any work and/or acquisition income records, such as a 1099 or W2, will be required.

-Deduction forms for mortgage or rent, loan interest, charity gifts, and education expenditures

-Any stimulus checks that were sent to you

-To get your return by direct deposit, you’ll need your bank account and routing number.

There appear to be as many alternatives for e-filing, also known as online filing, as there is paperwork to fill out when it comes to getting the job done. Your income, budget, the intricacy of your return, and possibly your tolerance for filling out paperwork will all influence which online filing option is best for you. Here are several solutions, such as IRS Free File and TurboTax, that should work for almost every type of taxpayer.
