IRS says it expects to start sending out refunds the first week of February
By Naomi Jagoda - 01/28/19 05:46 PM EST


The IRS said it expects to be able to issue most tax refunds in a timely fashion, as the 2019 tax-filing season began Monday, days after the end of the partial government shutdown.

The agency said it expects to start sending out refunds the first week of February and to pay out many refunds in mid-to-late February, as was the case in past years. It also said that like in the past, it expects to issue more than 90 percent of refunds within 21 days of a taxpayer submitting his or her return.

The start of the filing season comes days after the end of the 35-day government shutdown. At the beginning of the shutdown, the IRS was operating under a shutdown plan under which only about 12.5 percent of IRS employees were working. The agency later released a filing-season plan under which 46,000 employees were supposed to be working, though many of those people did not report back to work last week.

The IRS said that it's working to get its operations back to normal following the shutdown.

“The IRS will be doing everything it can to have a smooth filing season,” IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig said in a news release Monday.
