Luckily, you should all know the drill by now. You may have already been contacted by IRS to be given formal notice of the shutdown and informed whether you are excepted (required to work) or non- excepted (not required to work during the shutdown). Note that this may have changed since the last shutdown, due to different work requirements.
Please monitor the IRS Emergency Hotline and news outlets for more information. Please also make sure we have your home email and cell phone information on NTEU.org if you’d like to receive regular updates on the situation.
