IRS Will Accept 2018 Tax Returns On-time Despite Government Shutdown

It’s business as usual at the Internal Revenue Service. The government shutdown will not affect 2018 income tax return filing. The IRS confirmed that income tax returns will begin to be processed beginning January 28, 2019 and will provide refunds as scheduled.

The IRS received a permanent indefinite appropriation from Congress to pay all tax refunds (31 U.S.C. 1324) so no worries about receiving any refunds. A significant portion of the IRS’ workforce is being recalled that are currently furloughed to support taxpayers customer service needs.
