How Will The US Goverment Shut Down Affect You?

Posted by Admin Posted on Jan 20 2018

If you haven't yet filed your 2017 Tax Return the US government shut down should have little or no impact on you.

If you have filed your tax return the major impact will be a suspension of processing refunds.

Processing of amended income tax returns and related refunds will also be suspended during the shut down period.

Most taxpayer support services will be suspended during the shut down. So telephone inquiries about tax law and collections will not be answered during the shut down period.

Let's hope our elected officials can come to some sort of agreement quickly to resolve this situation.
