Tax season officially got underway Monday as the Internal Revenue Service started accepting and processing federal tax returns for 2019.

More than 150 million individual tax returns for the 2019 tax year are expected to be filed by the Wednesday, April 15, 2020, deadline. The IRS expects the vast majority of those to be filed before April 15.

The IRS supports free online options for qualifying taxpayers through IRS Free File.
