Congressional Democrats are starting to encourage people to file their taxes early this year so they qualify for more generous federal relief under President Joe Biden’s stimulus package.

Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, tweeted that tax-filing season starts this week on February 12. He encouraged people who lost employment or suffered any loss of wages to file their taxes “ASAP” to ensure the timely arrival of federal aid.
