IRS: Government Shutdown Means No Tax Refunds


WASHINGTON -- The Internal Revenue Service says you must pay your taxes during the government shutdown. But don't expect any refunds.

The IRS said Tuesday it will gladly accept tax returns and payments during the shutdown. In fact, they are required by law.

But, the agency said, it will not issue any tax refunds until the government resumes normal operations.

Most Americans filed their taxes in the spring. But more than 12 million filers asked for an automatic six-month extension, and those returns are due Oct. 15. .......................(more)

1. woops sorry Exxon

Well I hope everyone getting a refund has already filed. That's a lot of people but then there are many who may owe for last year but have no paycheck this year

3. That would be me - for multiple years.

Life has been bonkers for the last year, so I have an amended return to file by the 16th (and I expect a refund - my time has been more valuable than what they owed me - except that I'm moving to a new job, with a 50% pay cut, where I expected to cover the shortfall in income using this refund

. . . and three more-> I expect refunds from 2010 - 2012 because my 32 year marriage is now recognized and I get to file amended returns for the three open years.

At least the interest will still be adding up a penny or two at a time...
