You can be one of the many people who have placed a bet.

If history is any guidance, it'd be late Jan but with everything that's going on, who knows?

In the meantime, you can check the following IRS web pages for updates:

The first link https://www.irs.gov/e-file-providers/modernized-e-file-mef-status had 

Filing Season Start Dates:  Business tax returns: January 8, 2021 and Individual tax returns: January 27, 2021  yesterday, but today it has Filing Season Start Dates:  Business tax returns: January 8, 2021 and Individual tax returns: TBD.
