IRS Budget Cuts May Mean Slower Processing of Returns
IRS Commissioner Koskinen announced that he doesn't think the late passages of the one-year tax extenders bill will delay the start of the filing season because the extension was straightforward. However, he is concerned about the continued budget cuts, saying that the cuts are past the fat now and into the muscle headed toward the bone. Refunds may be delayed, agency telephone assistance will be difficult to obtain, and the audit ratio will drop even further.
