IRS workers furloughed on Friday

Posted at: 05/24/2013 9:29 AM

The IRS is shutting down Friday because of the federal sequester. This is one of five days IRS workers are being furloughed.

This means, there will be no one staffing IRS toll free hotlines today, along with 400 taxpayer assistance centers nationwide.

IRS officials say the agency won't be able to accept or acknowledge it received any electronically filed returns.
