/

In this episode of ‘Dr. Friday Tax Tips – One Minute Moment,’ Dr. Friday, President of Dr. Friday’s Tax and Financial Firm, addresses the eagerness of taxpayers who have received their W-2s and are ready to file their taxes. She highlights a crucial point: the e-file system for tax year 2023 doesn’t open until January 22, 2024. This means that early filers should not expect their refunds within the usual 5-10 day window. Dr. Friday provides valuable insights into the expected refund release dates, emphasizing that refunds could be issued as early as February 9th, but those with Earned Income Credit may have to wait until February 23rd. She encourages listeners to remember these dates to manage their expectations appropriately. Additionally, Dr. Friday reminds listeners to tune in to her live call-in show every Saturday from 2-3 PM on 99.7 WTN for more tax insights.
