Taxes! We hate paying them, so let's discuss maximizing tax deductions!

How soon can I file my 2013 taxes?

that's right, as the system appears as of now
anything can happen when Congress gets back to work and if they make changes that will affect forms or laws, that will likely delay the date of acceptance
and it is 2012 taxes, 2013 has not expired yet

As soon as you receive your W2s and 1099s, but that won't be until after the first of the year.

Taxes are named for the previous year. The taxes filed starting in January 2012 were 2011 taxes. The taxes you can start filing in January 2013 are 2012 taxes. The first day to file 2013 taxes will be in 2014.

The IRS has not yet announced the date that they will start accepting e-filed returns for tax year 2012 yet. Typically it's around the middle of January but the exact date varies from year to year.

I'm putting my money on January 15th with the first round of direct deposits scheduled to go out around January 24th or 25th. That is just an educated guess, however.

You can file a paper return at any time after January 1st once the forms have been released and you have all of your source documents in hand, however the IRS will not start processing those until the day that they start accepting e-filed returns. Since it takes longer to process paper returns you generally will have any refund in hand sooner if you wait for the first day and e-file then and opt for direct deposit.
