The IRS Begins Recalling Employees to Process Tax Returns

The IRS is recalling roughly 46,000 employees to handle tax returns and pay refunds. These employees will not be paid during the shutdown. Previously furloughed staff will be joining the 10,000 “essential” employees currently working.

President Trump stated on Tuesday that the government is running smoothly, even with reduced staff.
