As usual the US Congress faces the end of September deadline to pass the budget and if they do not, they will shut down the government for the 2nd time in two years.The consequences would be chaos among federal agencies and cost taxpayers billions of $.

Among the agencies touched could be the US Department of Justice (DoJ). Assuming that the DoJ would shut down for a while because of the budget block out, the banks in the US Tax Program could have to wait longer to come to an agreement with the DoJ. It would then lengthen the settlement process for Category 2 banks and stretch it to 2016.
