Effects of the Government Shutdown on the IRS

The Federal Government has shut down operations on October 1st because Congress did not pass a government funding bill for the fiscal year starting October 1, 2013. As a result, tens of thousands of IRS employees have been furloughed and the IRS will only maintain core functions. Tax filing deadlines remain the same and payments are still due in a timely manner, despite the shutdown.

The following Operations will cease during the shutdown

  • Tax refunds will not be issued
  • Examinations and Audit of Tax Returns will not occur
  • Taxpayer and practitioner assistance will not be available and Taxpayer Assistance Centers will be closed
  • There will be no processing of paper return that do not require remittance

The following functions will remain available during the shutdown

  • The processing of all electronic tax returns
  • The Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) will remain operational during the shutdown — please continue to make your tax payments
  • If you have an outstanding issue with the IRS notices will continue to be generated and mailed out, but you will not be able to contact anyone in regard to these notices

The filing deadline for all individuals that extended their returns is still Tuesday, October 15, 2013.

For more information of what may be effected during the shutdown please visit www.irs.gov.
