Individual Due Dates in January 2024

January 2 – Time to Call For Your Tax Appointment

January is the beginning of tax season. If you have not made an appointment to have your taxes prepared, we encourage you to do so before the calendar becomes too crowded.

January 10 – Report Tips to Employer

If you are an employee who works for tips and received more than $20 in tips during December, you are required to report them to your employer on IRS Form 4070 no later than January 10.

January 16 – Individual Estimated Tax Payment Due

It’s time to make your fourth quarter estimated tax installment payment for the 2023 tax year.

January 31 – Individuals Who Must Make Estimated Tax Payments

If you didn’t pay your last installment of estimated tax by January 16, you may choose (but aren’t required) to file your income tax return (Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR) for 2023 by January 31. Filing your return and paying any tax due by January 31 prevents any penalty for late payment of the last installment. If you can’t file and pay your tax by January 31, file and pay your tax by April 15 (April 17 if you live in Maine or Massachusetts).

Weekends & Holidays

If a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the due date is automatically extended until the next business day that is not itself a legal holiday.

Disaster Area Extensions

Please note that when a geographical area is designated as a disaster area, due dates will be extended. For more information whether an area has been designated a disaster area and the filing extension dates visit the following websites:
