The IRS is trying to reopen dozens of offices around the country this week and trying to recall thousands of employees after they were sent home for months to telecommute. The IRS priorities are completing the $267 billion in stimulus payments that require a check, processing 2019 personal tax returns with refunds, and tackling the 10 million pieces of mail that have accumulated while they were at home telecommuting. They are also getting ready for the July 15, 2020 deadline.The major service centers remain closed for now and those that are open are not running at full strength. Refunds are being processed more slowly than usual and there is very little, if any, telephone assistance. The IRS is directing people to the IRS website when possible.
