IRS accepting accountability for late refunds caused by pandemic

If you've ever gotten money back after filing your tax return, you probably know what it's like to wait for the IRS to process your refund so you can take a vacation, pay other debts or invest in your future. Considering this year's shutdowns and July Tax Day, waiting patiently for a refund may be harder than usual right now.

Married couples hold many benefits. Not only can they share their lives together, they can also get special tax privileges. But this financial advantage comes with great responsibility. If spouses file a joint tax return, they can be equally liable for those returns and any interest, penalties and other expenses that come with them. That holds true even if one spouse is the sole source of income.
