The taxman is back today for those of you who filed an extension with the IRS in April.
Today is the deadline to file those returns. October filers won't be seeing their returns immediately, the IRS says it will not issue refunds until the government shutdown is over. More than 90 percent of IRS workers are currently furloughed.
Even a partial government shutdown that has most IRS workers furlough won't affect Tuesday's tax deadline.
Tax filers who requested a six month extension back in April must file their taxes by today.
Officials with the Internal Revenue Service say the shutdown hasn't changed that, but it has halted any refund checks until normal government operations resume.
There's also no one there to take calls or answer taxpayer questions, since more than 90 percent of IRS workers are on furlough.
SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) — The Illinois attorney general's office says the federal appellate court has given the state an extra 30 days to lift its ban on concealed weapons.
The court on Tuesday granted Attorney General Lisa Madigan's request to allow Gov. Pat Quinn more time to review legislation passed last week.
However, on issuing its ruling, the court said it would not issue another extension of its mandate past the new deadline of July 9.
Illinois was the last state in the union banning the concealed carrying of guns when, in December, the court struck down the ban. The court gave lawmakers until June 8 to legalize the concealed carry of firearms.
Madigan said the Sunday date would have shortened the time set in the state constitution to allow Quinn to review legislation.
