Has anyone gotten theirs back yet? I don't even know when people start getting them back, isn't it like the end of the month?

You don't need to get your W2 until the end of the month.
As soon as you get your W2 you can file.

Depends on when you file. We can't file until we get the forms from school and DH's W2 which they don't mail until the lost possible day which is the 31st... Grr....

Pretty sure you can't file yet. We don't even get our W2s until like the 31st. Some times later.

DH already has one of his and he's waiting on his other one, which he might be getting at the end of this week.

Employers legally have to mail your W2's out by Jan31.

Pretty sure the first day is the 22nd. If you have more complicated stuff maybe later. They haven't finished all the laws yet last I heard.

It varies. The IRS sets a date every year on when they will start accepting tax returns. I think you can send them, but they won't be looked at until the date they set.
And with all the chaos their new systems caused last year, I think they will be extra cautious this year with everyones returns.

Through Turbotax I have entered info I have and I can't file till the 17th at the earliest because that is when they will get the forms from the irs.

If you have your w-2s you can file. I've got one, waiting on my unemployment one, which usually comes around the 15th. But a lot of employers do wait till the 31st to send them out

last year all of my year end info was on the place I code my time for work. So it was easy to do my taxes. Now this year we have to wait to get ours in the mail.
