Don’t be surprised if you can’t get through to the IRS the next time you need its ­services. Due to the sequester and other budgetary restraints necessitating furloughs of its staffers, the IRS recently announced it will shutter its doors on May 24, June 14, July 5, July 22 and Aug. 30. According to Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, two additional days off in August and September may be required.

Currently, the plan is for all 90,000 IRS employees to be furloughed on the five days already designated by Miller. As a result of this move, the IRS will have to completely close down public operations, including access to taxpayer assistance centers and its toll-free phone lines.
