There may be considerable delays before the IRS sends out any tax refunds.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) January 25, 2019
A lot of people are feeling the effects of the government shutdown. That is why National Debt Relief shares some concrete ways people are affected. The article titled “How the Government Shutdown is Affecting Everybody” released January 16, 2019, helps people to understand the effects of the shutdown on different sectors of society.
The article starts off by pointing out that this is the longest government shutdown in the history of the country. There are hundreds of thousands of federal workers whose paychecks are on hold because of the shutdown. The White House and Congress remain at an impasse, and no deal to end the shutdown appears to be in sight. This shutdown will affect not only federal workers but even those in the private sector.
The article shares that traveling by plane will now be more challenging because of the long lines at the airport. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is one of the many government agencies affected by the shutdown and not being paid. As a result, staffing at the airports has been difficult with only a few personnel. This results to long lines and delays in screening points inside the airport. Consumers would have to put in a lot longer time at the airport if they have a flight.
The article also points out that one of the affected agencies is the Internal Revenue System or IRS. Many of the agency’s employees are currently furloughed as the shutdown continues. While everyone will still be required to file their Federal taxes on time this year, there may be considerable delays before the IRS sends out any tax refunds.
The article shares as well that the government shutdown will affect food safety to a certain extent. For one, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is one of the government agencies currently impacted by the shutdown. The problem is that their food safety inspectors are currently not being paid. If the shutdown persists, there could be a possible decrease in the quantities and varieties of produce available at the grocery store in the days ahead.
