CARBONDALE (WSIL) -- The IRS won't start accepting returns until January 27th, but experts say it is never too early start filling.

"It's really easy. We make it enjoyable and it's not like going to the dentist or anything. To where they come in they bring in they bring their documentation in and then we can get to work," said tax pro Alex Gaiduoa.

Companies like Jackson Hewitt are already talking to clients about some new changes this year.

"The standard deduction has also increased. That is now $12,400 for single taxpayers and $24,800 for married filing jointly," he said.

Also, there's no longer a penalty for not having health insurance. That could save you between $300 and $400.

For some, filing taxes can feel like a chore, but experts say to take advantage of the website for a more convenient process.

"You can utilize the internet to where say they came in for the early refund advance and they just had their paycheck stubs. With the MyJH Account, then they can actually download their W2s when they get them to where they necessarily don't have to come back in," said Gaiduoa.

And of course, the longer you wait to file, the longer it may take to get a refund.
