(KTVI)– Most IRS workers are at home due to the government shutdown, but that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook for your taxes.

Tuesday’s deadline for filing your taxes if you requested a six-month extension in April still stands.

But the IRS says it won’t issue any refunds until ‘normal government operations resume.’

There also won’t be any workers to take calls or help taxpayers in person.

More than 90 percent of IRS workers are furloughed.
