Millions of American taxpayers are still waiting for the IRS to process their federal income tax return — and waiting to receive their refunds, according to a new report from National Taxpayer Advocate Erin Collins.
Collins said in a report to Congress the IRS had a backlog of 4.7 million returns for the 2019 tax year as of mid-May, which is delaying refunds for many.
The article goes on to state the following:
This year’s tax filing season has been tumultuous for both taxpayers and the IRS because of the coronavirus pandemic. While the filing deadline was pushed back from April 15 to July 15, taxpayers have had fewer IRS resources available this year because the agency shut down many of its help lines and centers.
In the report, Collins warned that taxpayers who filed a 2019 paper return and are expecting a refund “may be in for a long wait.”
