    As previously reported, the IRS will be closed for scheduled furlough days and today June 14, 2013 is one of those days!  What does this mean to US taxpayers?  Well, if you need the assistance of the IRS whether by phone or in person you will NOT be able to get through!

    The IRS if furloughing its employees with no pay in an attempt at a budget cut.  This means that no tax returns as well as compliance related activates will occur.  Additionally, PTIN, the online system for preparer tax identification number will be shut down.

    The IRS did advise that all US taxpayers should still go forth with filing their returns as normal.  This furlough does not impact any deadlines for tax preparation.  Keep in mind the IRS cannot furnish receipt of services on the furloughed days. In the event that the last day to respond to IRS requests falls on June 14, 2013 you will have until Monday June 17, 2013 (the following business day).
