The IRS is Currently Closed

The IRS is closed for annual maintenance from now until mid-January.

The IRS noted that taxpayers should continue to file their returns and pay any taxes due as usual.

Here’s a partial list of functions that directly impact taxpayers and would typically be put on hold during a government shutdown:

  • You cannot walk in and fill your 2290
  • Production systems are not operational at this time.
  • No tax refunds issued
  • No processing of non-disaster relief transcripts
  • No processing of forms 1040X, amended returns
  • No non-automated collections
  • No audit or examinations (some exceptions apply)
  • No legal counsel
  • No call center during Non-Filing Season
