The government shutdown won't stop tax refunds from going out. There are still other challenges, however, that some tax filers could face. Paul Georgia, a Certified Public Accountant in Sturgeon Bay, says the shutdown has made it a little harder for him to get answers for some clients from the IRS. He also says that even if some people want to file now they won't get a refund any faster.
The IRS will start accepting 2018 tax returns on January 28th.
