USA Today says people can get their tax refunds on time even though the Internal Revenue Service is short-staffed because of the gov. shutdown.

They say taxpayers who file electronically and who request their refund by direct deposit should receive their money on time as opposed to people, who request checks or are being reviewed.

People, who file paper returns may have to wait months for their refund because many IRS employees are not showing up to work.

Other findings:

80% of refunds are paid by direct deposit. 90% of refunds were filed electronically last year.

So all in all, if you want your money back on time, file electronically and request you refund by direct deposit!
