2023 Tax Due Dates and Deadlines for 2022 Tax Returns

Reading Time: 3 minutes

As the new year is approaching, the deadline to file your tax for 2023 is near. It is estimated that the IRS starts accepting tax returns for the new year in late January.

It’s important to keep a check on the deadlines because missing important deadlines can result in late filing penalties by the IRS.

Moreover, keep revising your taxes forms and their requirements before the deadlines. If you have incurred a wrong form at an urgent time, it could be very overwhelming to fix it at a later date.

In the coming section of the article, we have mentioned important tax forms and their deadlines in 2023.

Tax Due Dates in 2023

There are some requirements and procedures to follow when you’re filing for a tax return. Tax returns are filed by individuals or companies who earn some income from their business activities.

On this income (that you have earned in the previous year), the tax must be filed with the government. Moreover, calculating the right income for taxes is itself a huge challenge. Once you have chosen your income bracket, finding the right tax forms can also be a hectic process.

If you are struggling to file your taxes, talk with an experienced CPA. He/she can also save your money to avoid paying unnecessary taxes. You may also claim tax credits and deductions with the right expertise.

Some of the most prominent tax due dates in 2023 are covered below:

Form W-2, W3, 1099 NEC and 1096 NEC, 1099-G, 1099-K, 1099-S, 1099-MISC, 1099-BJanuary 31, 2023

Fiscal Year Tax Filers:

There’s a different schedule followed by companies that follow a fiscal tax year rather than a normal calendar year. 

  • For companies following fiscal years, the forms for partnership and S-corporations should be sent in by the 15th day of the 3rd month of every tax closing year date.
  • The important point to keep in mind is that there will be no extension in case of the S-corporation due date to file. 
  • The due date for C-corporation for filing their tax returns is on the 15th day of the fourth month after the tax year closes.
  • The extended deadline for C-corporations following the fiscal year would be 31st December 2025 rather than 30th June.
  • People who have opted for the employee benefits scheme have the benefit to file their returns till the last day of the 7th month after the closing year of the company.

Changes Carrying Over From 2017 to 2023

The IRS keeps on changing their rules and regulations to make the processes better for their tax filers. Following are some of the broad changes to look over in the past 5 years.

  • The form 1065 (partnership income) deadline to submit has been extended to 6 months rather than 5 months.
  • The form 1041 (Estates and Trust) deadline to submit has been extended to 5 and a half months rather than 5 months. This entails that they have been given a benefit period of 2 more weeks than the previous date.
  • People who have opted for the employee benefits scheme have the benefit to file their returns at an extended deadline which is at least 3 and a half months.
  • Individuals who have $10,000 or above in their foreign bank accounts must also file Foreign Bank Account Report forms. Forms must be submitted electronically with an extension period of 6 months. If you’re an individual, you must submit FinCEN 114 and Form 1040.
  • The updated deadline for the form 990 series is now 15th November for companies following the calendar year. You have 3 additional months to file the form.

How to File Your Taxes

Following are some of the steps to file your taxes:

Step 1: Decide your 2023 income tax bracket (inflation-adjusted).
Step 2: Decide your tax rate for the respective tax bracket (normally remains the same).
Step 3: Find the relevant tax forms.
Step 4: Consult a CPA, filing your taxes with inaccurate processes may result in penalties.

I usually don't write reviews much as everyone has different experiences, but definitely wanted to share the positive... experience I have had here and why I would recommend them to all my family, friends and co-workers.I got a referral for here from a friend, so thought of giving them a try over my old CPA firm. I have been going here for a couple years now and have to say they are top notch. They are always responsive and willing to work with me even when I am delayed. I generally like to ask a lot of questions and not once did I feel like they were annoyed by it and would very thoroughly and positively answer all my concerns with detail explanations. Even during the pandemic, they worked with me 100% virtual and it was seamless. Overall, I am very happy with this firm and will continue with them for the foreseeable future.read more

I’ve been going to them for 3 years now for multiple of my businesses. I changed to them after I had problems with my... previous CPA firm and I’m so glad I did! Best decision I ever made for my businesses. They have saved me thousands of dollars over the years as well as deal with my immensely complicated tax filling issues. No matter when I call, they always help answer all my questions (and trust me I have a lot) and put my mind at ease on all my concerns. I feel as if I am family the way they take care of me. The quality of their work has not changed; very consistent and professional. It is an understatement when I say I highly recommend them.read more

I moved to the USA from Canada late 2018 as part of a promotion/relocation for work. For my 2019 returns, I used an... accounting firm recommended by the local Canadian social club in my city, which was a terrible experience. They were slow to respond to inquiries and would follow up in piecemeal requests which dragged out my return process over several months, often asking for information I had already provided.For the price I paid, I vowed to find better service. I found Mohammad online and decided to reach out. Mohammad was extremely responsive, took care of my US and Canadian returns as well as my wife's business returns in a timely manner. Overall, it was a very positive experience and I would recommend him to another in my situation.read more

I relocated to Texas from Alberta, Canada and needed a CPA to help me with my cross-border taxes as I was not happy... with the CPA that I used previously. During my interviewing process to find another CPA, I had good feedback from Mohammad as he was able to answer my questions regarding my unique tax situation with expertise, and importantly to me, in a timely manner. I decided to use his services for the current tax year and I have nothing but compliments for the work Mohammad provided. If you are in need of a professional cross-border CPA, I highly recommend reaching out to Mohammad Akif.read more
