Miss a January tax tip? Find them on their special page

Hand pointing fingerWhew! We made it through January.

For a while, it looked like the 2019 filing season might be delayed due to the longest federal government shutdown in U.S. history.

But a deal to fund the affected agencies was reached and the Internal Revenue Service started accepting and processing 2018 tax returns on Jan. 28.

If you weren't among the early filers, you've still got plenty of time to do the job between now and April 15 (or 17).

The Filing Season Tax Tips can help. You'll should be able to quickly spot them thanks to the old-school yellow No. 2 pencil tip image that will remain where it has been for years.

If you missed any of the highlighted tips that appeared there in January, you can check them out on their own special January page.

The tips will continue through the 2019 filing season, all the way through the April due date(s). Again, if you miss any as they're posted, they'll also be collected (eventually) on February, March and April tax tips pages.

That way, whether you're working on your taxes, turning your annual tax-filing task over to a professional or making moves for the 2019 tax year, you can check out all the 2019 Filing Season Tax Tips whenever the tax mood strikes.
