A question CPA’s are commonly asked is “when is my tax return due?” Below is a quick summary of some of the most common tax deadlines for calendar year-end filers (note, fiscal year-end filers and state income tax return filing dates may vary):
January 31, 2023 – Form W-2 & W-3, 1099-MISC & 1099-NEC, 1099-INT & 1099-OID, 1099-DIV, 3921 & 3922 must be distributed to recipients by January 31, 2023. Filing dates with the IRS vary, depending on the method of filing (electronic versus paper).
March 1, 2023 – Entities incorporated, organized, or registered to do business in Delaware must file their Annual Reports online with the State of Delaware.

Note, because the standard deadline for filing (April 15th) falls on Saturday and because the next business day (Monday, April 17th) is a Federal holiday, the filing deadline is April 18th this year. Some states may not conform to this deadline so check with your provider to ensure your state filing deadlines.
