Sequester Closure Postponed IRS Will be Open Aug. 30

The Internal Revenue Service today announced it will be open on Friday, Aug. 30, following the
postponement of its fifth scheduled agency-wide employee furlough day.

“We have made substantial progress in cutting costs. … Our
progress is such that we have decided to postpone the furlough
day scheduled for Aug. 30. We still have more work to do on
the budget and cost-savings, so we will reevaluate in early
September and make a final determination as to whether we will
need another furlough day in September,” said Danny Werfel,
IRS Acting Commissioner, in a message to IRS employees.

The IRS has so far taken three furlough days on May 24, June 14 and July 5 due to the current budget
situation, including the sequester.

Last month, the IRS was also able to cancel the previously scheduled July 22nd furlough day due to costcutting efforts.
