There is potential for a government shutdown after midnight on Friday due to a lack of budget approval. If this occurs, the IRS has stated that the April 18 tax deadline remains in effect. All taxpayers should continue to file their returns and pay their taxes as normal. The IRS plans to continue accepting all tax returns, both electronic and paper. Refunds will continue to be processed normally for electronically filed tax returns and most taxpayers will not see delays for e-filed returns. However, taxpayers should expect delays for paper tax refunds.
If you have any questions – please let me know.
