Statutory Filing Deadlines Not Extended By Government Shutdown

October 21, 2013

Even though the Tax Court and 90 percent of IRS operations were closed during the government shutdown, all statutory filing deadlines remained in effect. The timeliness of returns and court petitions will be established via the postmark or delivery certificate of an approved private delivery service (PDS) company.

It is recommended that all such filings be sent either certified/return receipt with the USPS, or via PDS. (See below link for approved DPS companies.)
