Reed, whose firm prepares about 4,000 tax returns every year, said she hasn't yet felt a severe impact from the shutdown, but she said she is anxious about potential delays in processing tax refunds if the shutdown continues much longer.
The IRS has said in the past that it would not issue any tax refunds during a shutdown. Greene-Lewis, and the other tax preparers interviewed for this article, said they had not heard from the IRS before the shutdown to tell them what to do.
The IRS issued an operational plan for a shutdown lasting five days, which kept about one in eight employees working.
The normal deadline for tax returns on income earned in 2018 is April 15. According to the agency, issuing tax refunds is categorized as a "non-excepted" activity, which means employees responsible for approving and writing checks are furloughed during a shutdown. He also noted that another problem for taxpayers is that as the shutdown continues, mortgage lenders will be unable to obtain tax transcripts to verify income for loan.
The possibility of a lengthy stalemate could complicate this year's tax season, the first under the new law passed by Congress in 2017. That could affect individuals and families that rely on that money. "We offer a refund advance loan, 500 to six thousand dollars, you can get it within 24 to 48 hours", said Land.
That means most workers whose duties range from answering taxpayer questions to paying out refunds typically aren't at work.
Right now, there's no word on when the IRS workers may return to the office.
