Last year, I believe that they said that any tax refunds would have to wait until after the Government shut down was over.
After all, there would be no IRS to process it.
Personally, if my Government is shut down for over two weeks, I'd not expect to pay for services that I was not getting. Therefore, I'd request
that my taxes not be paid for the same 16 days that the Government was shut down. After all, it's tax dollars that fund the Government, and no
services were being provided for in return.
I'd think that if your cable were out for 16 days, because the cable company wasn't providing a signal due to some issue at their end, you'd not
only demand a refund from the cable company, you'd probably do your best to find an alternative. Time for all US taxpayers to demand 16 days worth
of tax refund from their Government, for services paid for and never delivered. Time for a refund, and time for consumers to find an alternative
Good luck with that, BTW. lol
