White House Promises Tax Refunds Will Go Out Despite Shutdown

By Doug Lazy on January 7, 2019
WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 14: The words "In God We Trust" are seen on U.S. currency October 14, 2004 in Washington, DC. Although the U.S. constitution prohibits an official state religion, references to God appear on American money, the U.S. Congress starts its daily session with a prayer, and the same U.S. Supreme Court that has consistently struck down organized prayer in public schools as unconstitutional opens its public sessions by asking for the blessings of God. The Supreme Court will soon use cases from Kentucky and Texas to consider the constitutionality of Ten Commandments displays on government property, addressing a church-state issue that has ignited controversy around the country.

The White House has promised that despite the government shutdown, 2018 tax refunds will be issued by the IRS! 

CNN.com says that even though the IRS is part of the government shutdown, that the White House has confirmed that we will be getting income tax refunds. The Department Of Treasury confirmed that refunds will be issued. Normally, the IRS would not pay refunds while the government is shut down but it looks they’re making an exception in this case.

The article also says that “the IRS has yet to announce when individuals and businesses can begin submitting their income tax returns.”
