The IRS will begin accepting electronic tax return filings (e-File) on Monday, January 23rd 2017. Final tax returns are due by Tuesday, April 18th; unless a 6-month extension is approved. Now, with that being said, even if you filed early this month, it doesn’t mean that your taxes will get squared away with the IRS until the 23rd:

This includes returns filed via the main tax software providers or directly via the IRS website for lower income filers. The IRS also reiterated that filing your taxes electronically is the most accurate way to file a tax return and the fastest way to get a refund. It is expected that more than 150 million tax returns will be e-filed in 2017."
