2022 Tax Filing Statistics [Infographic]

2022 Tax Filing Statistics [Infographic]

In 2022, the Internal Revenue Service faced a historic backlog of unprocessed tax returns that the Department of Treasury attributed to underfunding and pandemic-related challenges. When Drake Software pulled the IRS tax filing statistics for last year, two issues were top of mind:

  • How many individual returns were processed compared to the same period in 2021?
  • Did taxpayers choose to file with a tax professional or do-it-yourself product?

For the answers to those questions and more, get the FREE Drake Software 2022 Tax Filing Statistics Infographic.

Whether designing superheroes, penciling caricatures, or just doodling, I always knew I was going to earn some sort of art degree while in college. That was my goal before I decided to trade Edgar Degas for Edgar Allan Poe during a Freshman English class. The BA in English soon morphed into a double-major in English and Philosophy, eventually becoming an MA in English. It only makes sense that I learned of a writing opportunity for a local marketing firm while teaching a first-year college English course. Before I knew it, I was writing and editing tax-related articles for Taxing Subjects, and this has been my home since 2014.
