Will the Gov't shutdown affect my Turbo Tax estimated federal refund date? 2/12/18?

It is possible that your refund date could be affected, dependent upon the length of the shutdown period. 

During the shutdown the IRS will not conduct these functions:

  • Service center processing after the point of batching (i.e. processing paper tax returns)
  • Issue refunds
  • Processing non-disaster relief transcripts, income verification express service/return and income verification services
  • Process 1040x amended returns
  • All audit functions, examinations of returns and processing of non-electronic tax returns that do not include remittances
  • Non-automated collections
  • Legal counsel
  • Tax payer services such as responding to taxpayer questions (call sites)

Some IRS functions are automated. That means you can electronically file your return during the shutdown.

If you do have tax obligations where you’re making tax payments, those are still required.
