What happens to IRS while the government is shut down

Now that the government is shut down the IRS is only working partially.
Forbes has reported the following citing Tax Analysts.
The IRS will continue to process electronic tax returns under its contingency plan, and it will take steps to protect data and continue criminal enforcement operations. But it won’t be able to perform exams, give phone assistance, or accept non-electronic returns. Only 9 percent of the agency’s personnel (about 8,700 of the 95,000 employees) will be allowed to work. The plan did not address what would happen if the shutdown continued into the filing season, but it said that if the situation lasted more than five days, the IRS would reevaluate its needs.
So if a chiropractor, dentist or physician is being audited the audit process is suspended and now it will take longer to conclude.
