White House: Tax Refunds To Be Sent Out Despite Government Shutdown

Tax refunds ‘will go out’ despite government shutdown White House official promises Tax refunds for 48 million people could be delayed because of government shutdown

But as the shutdown drags on, several government agencies that have traditionally been closed have reopened or reappropriated funds for necessary services.

The decision could prove extremely consequential for US households and the USA economy.

The decision will come as a relief to many taxpayers who file their taxes as soon as the filing season begins to claim their refund checks, which averaged $2,899 a year ago.

"We have tried to make this as painless as possible consistent with the law", Vought said at a White House briefing. He was joined by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and other senior administration officials.

Chandler Parsons, Grizzlies Agree To Part Ways
So far this season, Parsons has only appeared in three games for the 18-21 Grizzlies, who are now 11th in the Western Conference. Wallace issued a statement Sunday night after ESPN .com reported that the Grizzlies and Parsons had agreed to a split.

Meanwhile, some economists and experts are scratching their heads, wondering how Trump will accomplish paying out tax refunds during a federal government shutdown.

Funding for the IRS lapsed on December 22, 2018, leaving the agency to function on a contingency plan that provides some flexibility on operations during the first five days of a government shutdown.

Neither, apparently, are house Democrats.

"I think carving out this exception for political reasons is another blow to morale" among federal workers, said Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va.

The announcement is a reversal of a long-standing policy to withhold refunds during shutdowns. The IRS is delaying tax refunds for millions of low-income families as the agency steps up efforts to combat identity theft and fraud.

The partial shutdown has cut off new funding to the Treasury Department and the USDA, putting a vast majority of employees on furlough, and bringing necessary work to a halt.

While many taxpayers may not feel this is a great loss, they'll still have to pay their taxes - and the shutdown has created a good deal of uncertainty for everyone planning to file their tax returns in the coming months.
