The scandal ridden Obama IRS has just announced it is halting ALL tax refund payments to Americans during the government shutdown. What is not halting, apparently, is the hiring and implementation of the thousands of NEW armed IRS agents responsible for Obamacare.
IRS Suspends Tax Refunds and Tax Court Closes during Government Shutdown
“Tax refunds will not be issued until normal government operations resume,” said the IRS. The IRS emphasized, however, that the underlying tax law remains in effect, and all taxpayers should continue to meet their tax obligations as normal.
“Individuals and businesses should keep filing their tax returns and making deposits with the IRS, as they are required to do so by law,” said the IRS. “The IRS will accept and process all tax returns with payments, but will be unable to issue refunds during this time. Taxpayers are urged to file electronically, because most of these returns will be processed automatically.” LINK
So individuals and businesses are required to keep sending the government money, but owed refunds will not be processed.
The thing is, the IRS claims it has an automated system that can receive your tax payment. What this notice failed to say is that it is the very same automated system that processes and distributes refunds. There is NO reason to have one and not the other.
The Obama administration clearly wants more Americans to go without, in the hopes their anger will turn against Republicans. Playing politics with the people’s own money. That is the Obama way… -UM
IN A WORLD GONE HORRIBLY WRONG, AMERICA NEEDS A NEW HERO.
