IRS operations starting up


The IRS announced that with the lifting of some COVID-19–related restrictions, IRS employees will begin certain operations once again, including processing mail, tax returns and paper correspondence; provide online and phone assistance; process requests for transcripts and similar information; process requests for release of liens and levies; and conduct correspondence audits and similar examinations. (IRS Statement: Update on IRS operations (April 29, 2020))

The IRS was still accepting paper returns, although not processing them, as well as performing certain other “mission critical” functions as identified on their website:
