FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA)–Tax payers are now taking a breath of relief after an announcement from the government that tax refunds will go out during the shutdown.
The refunds come at a time when not only is the IRS working with less people, but also when the 2017 tax law is activated.
Refunds during the shutdown is something that has never been done before, leaving some people questioning the logistics of getting their money back.
“That money won’t be coming back to the people, it won’t be going into our economy, it will all be delayed. It will come, it’s just a matter of when,” he said.
Vaught said the IRS will begin accepting returns this month, on the 28th.
