IRS Delays Furloughs To Keep Up With Refunds

WASHINGTON (March 1, 2013)--Any furloughs at the Internal Revenue Service will be delayed until summer, after the tax filing season ends, which means there shouldn’t be any delays in tax refunds, according to acting Commissioner Steven Miller, who sent employees a memo saying he wants to minimize the impact on taxpayers and IRS workers.

Miller said employees could be furloughed for five to seven days, if the spending cuts remain in effect this summer.

The IRS says most taxpayers get refunds within 21 days, if they file electronically and get refunds deposited directly into bank accounts.

The spending cuts are due to take effect later Friday.
