IRS to Close


The Internal Revenue Service announced on Wednesday that it will be closed on May 24, June 14, July 5, and August 30 due to the current budget situation and the sequester. All IRS operations will be closed on those days. This means that all IRS offices, including all toll-free hotlines, the Taxpayer Advocate Service and the agency’s nearly 400 taxpayer assistance centers nationwide, will be closed on those days. IRS employees will be furloughed without pay. No tax returns will be processed and no compliance-related activities will take place.  read the full news release
