*Shutdown Update: 01/13/2018 - Good News* / by Daniel Dundon

The bad news is that the federal government is still shutdown but the good news is that somehow the IRS will be opening the E-file system Jan 28th, 2019 and will be issuing refunds! We aren’t sure if they will be issued on the normal schedule but they said refunds will be issued. Many of the hotlines that tax professionals use to resolve issues will still be down along with standard taxpayer customer service so things will get interesting.
