After you receive your W2 (earning statement) form from your employer. If you had multiple jobs during 2012, you must have the W2 from all your employers to file. Most employer will have your W2 ready by January 31st.
Once you get your W2(s) you can figure out what you made for that year and what taxes were deducted from you. If you owe taxes you have to file by April 15th. If the IRS owes you a tax return or you do not owe any taxes at all, you can file the income tax any time before year end.
Most people file their tax as soon as possible after they got their W2 to avoid interest and penalty. If the IRS owe you a tax return, then the sooner you file, the sooner you get your money.
