The government shutdown is keeping most IRS workers at home, but that doesn't mean you're off the hook for filing your taxes today (Tuesday).

The agency says the Tuesday deadline for filing your taxes still stands if you requested a six-month extension back in April, but the IRS says it won't issue any refunds until "normal government operations resume."

The agency also won't have any workers to take calls or help taxpayers in person. More than 90-percent of IRS staff is on a government-wide furlough due to the federal shutdown.
