IRS Servers Down During Crucial Week

crimeandpunishment writes “A planned server outage turned into an unplanned glitch for the Internal Revenue Service, and it comes at a very bad time. The IRS planned the server outage for the holiday weekend … but today they couldn’t get the system back into operation. This week is the deadline for filing 2009 tax returns for taxpayers who got extensions. So far it’s not having a huge impact since the shutdown only involves the updated version of the e-filing system, and most programs used by large tax companies like H&R Block will default to the older version. There’s no estimate on when the system will be back up.”
