Government shutdown could slow tax returns

More from this show

If you’re expecting some money back from Uncle Sam this tax season, the government shutdown could slow that down. That’s because there will be no workers available to process the returns while the shutdown continues. Arizona State University School of Public Affairs Professor Shawn Novak, who used to work as a senior tax policy analyst for the U.S. Senate, talks about the possibility of late tax returns because of the shutdown.
