The IRS will make tax refunds even if the government remains shut down when they are set to be issued, the Trump administration said on Monday.
“Tax refunds will go out,” Russell Vought, the acting director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, told reporters during a briefing.
Vought said the move was a change from past shutdowns and that the appropriate agencies would issue further guidance.
House Democrats are planning to pass legislation this week to fund the Treasury Department and IRS, as part of their effort to push Republicans to end the shutdown.
President Donald Trump is set to Address the Nation to force the Democrats to pass 5 billion for the Trump barrier at the Border with Mexico
