Your tax reform questions answeredAmid the frantic push by Republicans to pass a tax overhaul by Christmas, it's easy to forget that you still have to contend with your 2017 taxes. The IRS on Thursday said it would start accepting 2017 federal income tax returns on Monday, January 29. But if you're not an early bird filer, you'll have until Tuesday, April 17 to get yours in. If even that's too soon for you, file for an automatic 6-month extension. Just remember an extension to file is not an extension to pay. You still need to pay Uncle Sam what you owe for last year by April 17, if you want to avoid late-payment penalties.
