Washington, DC – Representatives Jesús “Chuy” García (IL-04) and Lloyd Doggett (TX-35), a senior member on the Ways & Means Committee, led a group of over 50 House Democrats in a letter urging President Trump to swiftly reopen the government and address the potential crisis it causes for American families who need to receive their tax refunds on time.

Each day of the shutdown increases the likeliness of delayed tax returns or even erroneous tax filings, especially with the IRS facing new operating hurdles due to passage of the Republican tax bill last Congress, including an increase in the number of anticipated inquiries from tax filers about the new law.
