The office manager says there are some questions that can't be answered, but what she is advising customers to start getting tax paperwork together now.

The Daily Caller executive editor Vince Coglianese discusses how a partial government shutdown will impact the American people.

This year calls are coming in, but the questions are different.

Don't let the government shutdown fool you: You still have to file your taxes.

The IRS said it expects to soon update that contingency plan which originally called for agency officials to meet throughout the course of the shutdown to determine if employees need to be brought back to work, without pay, to keep up with some of these functions.

If the government shutdown continues, it could delay any refund that's due. That's because tax refunds may be delayed this year, thanks to the partial government shutdown, USA Today reports. Live telephone assistance is not available at this time.

For early taxpayers, this could mean a delay in when they receive their refunds.

The message also states that "normal operations will return as soon as possible".

"This filing season was always going to be challenging", Kyle Pomerleau, an economist at the Tax Foundation, an independent tax policy nonprofit, told ABC affiliate WFTS. "It's unfortunate, but hopefully, this won't extend beyond a couple of weeks", said Paul Davison, the general manager at H&R Block in East Stroudsburg.

According to CNN, the IRS has yet to announce when people can begin submitting their tax returns, but "any gap in individuals not receiving money they're owed will put pressure on President Trump and lawmakers to strike a deal quickly".
