The Internal Revenue Service also did not collect enforcement fees -- it usually collects about $1 billion each week, according to the report. The shutdown delayed almost $4 billion tax refunds, and could delay 2014 returns by up to 2 weeks.

OMB said that almost 6,300 children were unable to attend Head Start programs nationwide.

The government was unable to help about 500 small businesses that requested workplace safety assistance.

Health authorities could also not access national flu data at the beginning of flu season because the Center for Disease Control was unable to monitor the virus.
