Taxes still due Tuesday but refunds won’t come until end of shutdown
WASHINGTON – The government shutdown is keeping most IRS workers at home but that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook for your taxes.
Agency officials said Tuesday’s deadline for filing your taxes, if you requested a six-month extension in April, still stands.
However, the IRS said it won’t issue any refunds until “normal government operations resume.”
The agency also doesn’t have any workers to take calls or help taxpayers in person.
According to H&R Block, about 144,000 Oklahomans must turn in their taxes Tuesday.
Experts said e-filing is the easiest way but if you’re sending your return in the mail, make sure it is post marked by Tuesday or it will be late.
