Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis, Alerts Readers That Tax Refunds Will Be Issued Despite Government Shutdown

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR tells taxpayers who are expecting refunds that they can now do their happy dance because the IRS is allowed to send refunds even if government shutdown is not lifted.

Fairhope, AL, January 29, 2019: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently posted a new article on his website entitled “Refunds Set To Go-Go” in which Mr. Willis suggests getting tax returns filed as early as possible.

“At first it appeared that tax refunds would be withheld until the government shutdown was lifted,” Willis writes. He continues, “Many taxpayers were pretty worried. However, now taxpayers can do their happy dance!” Willis explains, “It has just been announced that not only will the refunds be issued, an official date has been set for when the IRS will be accepting tax returns. You can send your tax returns starting on January 28th. And, according to those in the know, the refunds will go out in a timely manner.”

According to Willis, “As you may or may not know, the government shutdown is because of that wall that the president wants to build along the Mexican border.” He continues adding, “The thought was that if taxpayers weren’t able to get their refunds there would be “excruciating pressure” on lawmakers to cut a deal to abandon the fight for that wall.”

Willis points out that, “In previous shutdown contingency plans, the IRS would accept tax returns during the filing season, but refunds would be delayed until the government was funded. In fact,” says Willis, “some Washington insiders and experts are saying that allowing the refunds to be paid might be illegal.” He emphasizes, “So, everyone expecting a refund this tax season should consider themselves fortunate, and with that being said, you need to file as quickly as possible. The way things are going in Washington, you don’t know if there will be another change of mind again that could result in not releasing the tax refunds. (Only kidding, sort of!)”
