The IRS published a “Fiscal 2018 Lapsed Appropriations Contingency Plan (During Filing Season)” to detail which employees would be furloughed during a government shutdown, as well as the services that will or will not be maintained during any shutdown.
Congress failed to pass a continuing resolution to continue funding of the federal government past January 19, 2018, thus triggering the plan. As the shutdown began at the start of a weekend, the real effect of implementing this plan will not be felt until Monday, January 22, 2018. Should Congress resolve their impasse over the weekend it’s possible that taxpayers and advisers will see no impact.
