Filing Season Statistics for Week Ending February 16, 2018

2018 Filing Season Statistics

Cumulative statistics comparing 2/17/2017 and 2/16/2018

Calendar year-to-year comparisons are difficult at this early point in the season as six additional days of tax return processing are included in the 2017 totals. However, when comparing the same number of days of filing, IRS is seeing an increase in returns received and accepted over 2017.
