Believe it or not, some American taxpayers are still awaiting refunds. Sources say, the IRS had stopped processing paper returns due to the coronavirus. This gave taxpayers an extra 3 months to pay if any taxes were owed. A spokesperson from the IRS says, they are strongly encouraging those who still mail paper tax returns to make a switch to electronic. Since reopening, reports show the agency estimated 7.8 million pieces of mail and about 3.6 million of it are unopened returns. Unfortunately, the agency is still isn’t fully staffed, however, no exact date has been released of when those will be processed.
