How a Potential Federal Government Shutdown Will Affect the Tax Deadline

April 8, 2011

The absence of a budget agreement between Congress and the Obama administration could result in a shutdown of some federal government services beginning Saturday, April 9. In the event of a government shutdown, the IRS plans to continue accepting all tax returns, both electronically and paper filed. The IRS has stated that they will continue normal processing of electronically filed returns in the event of a government shutdown. Refunds will continue to be processed normally for electronically filed tax returns, and most taxpayers will not see delays for electronically filed returns. Taxpayers can still expect to receive refunds in less than three weeks with direct deposit. The processing of paper filed returns, including tax refunds will be suspended in the event of a government shutdown so taxpayers should expect delays for paper tax refunds. Additionally, the April 18, 2011 due date for filing tax returns and extensions will not change in the event of a government shutdown.
