Shut-down government will still issue tax refunds, IRS says

If the shutdown lasts even longer than that there could be a delay in tax returns, but people in Rapid City aren't anxious about the shutdown affecting tax season.

The media company reports from the director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, Russell Vought at a Monday briefing that "tax refunds will go out".

In a press release Monday, the Internal Revenue Service confirmed that tax return processing will begin January 28 and refunds will be given to taxpayers as scheduled. Still, hundreds of billions in refunds would likely still be delayed because funding wouldn't be available, under current rules. The average tax refund paid during February past year was more than $3,000, and allowing that money to be paid could prevent an outcry from many taxpayers. If it's only a few days then it will only be a slight delay for some of the first people who file their taxes, but there are still people who wouldn't get a tax return until February because of the Path Act.

This caught many White House officials flat-footed, as several cabinet secretaries and agency leaders left Washington over Christmas week for vacations and other travel.

That's what will happen if the shutdown continues past the opening date for tax returns.
