The IRS will be closed on Friday May 24th, as well as June 14, July 5, July 22 and Aug. 30, 2013 due to the current budget situation. Filing and payment deadlines will NOT be affected, so you will want to take these dates into account as advised by the IRS:
Due to the current budget situation, including the sequester, all IRS operations will be closed on those days. This means that all IRS offices, including all toll-free hotlines, the Taxpayer Advocate Service and the agency’s nearly 400 taxpayer assistance centers nationwide, will be closed on those days. IRS employees will be furloughed without pay. No tax returns will be processed and no compliance-related activities will take place.
The IRS noted that taxpayers should continue to file their returns and pay any taxes due as usual
Taxpayers needing to contact the IRS about their returns or payments should be sure to take these furlough dates into account. In some instances, this may include taxpayers with returns or payments due soon after a furlough day, such as the June 17 deadline for taxpayers abroad and those making a second-quarter estimated tax payment as well as the Sept. 3 deadline for truckers filing a highway use tax return.
