Yep, looks like Turbo Taxes servers were totally bunged up last night. Some people were sitting there for hours, waiting for a confirmation after hitting submit. Intuit, makers of Turbo Tax, contacted the IRS but there’s been no official word whether people unable to submit their taxes by the midnight deadline will get an extension. Some statement from the IRS should be out today.
Good job, Intuit. That was your software’s day. You make a tax program, it needs to work on tax day. That’s like showing up to the Olympics drunk. Just another reason why you shouldn’t wait till the last minute to file your taxes. — BEN POPKEN
