Government shutdown 2019 update: You can file now with TurboTax


Today, the President announced plans for a temporary end to the Government Shutdown until February 15. Although the IRS previously confirmed the Government Shutdown would not impact processing tax returns, with filing season beginning on Monday, January 28, 2019, and that they would provide tax refunds as scheduled, you may have delayed filing your taxes.

There is no reason to delay filing. The average federal direct deposit tax refund was about $3,000 last tax season. You can get started now with TurboTax and be first in line for your tax refund!
