The IRS has officially announced the initial 2022 Filing Season Statistics for week ending February 4, 2022. Weekly filing season statistics show cumulative and comparative totals from the 2022 and 2021 tax return filing seasons.
2022 FILING SEASON STATISTICS for Week Ending February 4, 2022
2021 Filing Season began February 12, 2021; 2022 Filing Season began January 24, 2022
The IRS is off to a strong start to this year’s tax season, with more than four million refunds already being delivered as of February 4, 2022. For historical perspective, it’s important to remember these weekly numbers can shift dramatically during the initial weeks of filing season due to numerous factors, including the calendar and filing patterns that can change year to year. Since the IRS successfully opened tax season two weeks earlier this year than 2021, there are no year-to-year comparisons at this point in tax season.
