The IRS is Reopening ... Slowly
Practical Note ... If you filed for a tax refund or a copy of a tax document (for example, to apply for a student loan, a mortgage, etc.) these requests are pretty much going to be handled in the order they were received beginning with those that came in October 1.
My expectation is that for at least the next month, perhaps through the holidays, these requests are likely to take 3-4 weeks longer than they ordinarily would. Just sayin' ...
