When will the IRS begin processing returns?

The IRS will begin accepting and processing returns Friday, February 12, 2021. Returns sent by preparers before this date are being held in a queue and will be transmitted to the IRS as soon as the IRS is ready to process.
When the IRS starts processing returns, acknowledgments may be unpredictable due to the high volume of returns being processed.

Sooner is always better than later, and preparation is key for this tax season!
