Your Tax Payment Still Due Oct 15th Despite Halt on Refund Checks

Posted by McDonald & Osborne Posted on Oct 14 2015

If you were granted a 6-month extension on your tax return back in April and thought the government shutdown meant you had a little extra time to file, think again. According to the Wall Street Journal Article, IRS: Furloughs for Us, but no Tax Holiday for You the IRS made a point to remind taxpayers that they will still be cashing their checks next Tuesday on the October 15th deadline. The furlough causing shutdown has apparently reduced the agency’s ability to issue refund checks “until normal government operations resume”. The cash checking arm of the IRS remains open for business as any payments are still due October 15th.
