IRS website suffers partial outage on Tax Day

The Latest Taxpayers get 1-day extension due to IRS glitch

Pennsylvania taxpayers are being given an extra day to file their state tax returns and pay any tax that is due, the state Department of Revenue announced.

Tuesday is the last day for taxpayers to file their tax returns.

IRS website suffers partial outage on Tax Day: Read coverage at CBS News.

The direct pay feature lets you send money to the IRS directly from your bank account, whereas the payment plan option lets those who qualify pay in installments.

Kautter said the agency discovered the outage in the early morning hours, sometime between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. Congress did just approve $320 million to help the agency cope with the sweeping tax law changes recently enacted, but critics say the agency will need more.

Today is on the national calendar as the final day to file federal taxes for 2017. The problem is, electronic filing is the most popular way to file.

IRS officials were caught surprised by the breakdown Tuesday morning.

The IRS also released a statement today that their online filing system is experiencing technical glitches.

Acting Commissioner David Kautter said that the IRS is current with all of the tax submissions and no backlog remains.

Since the president's tax returns are automatically audited by the IRS, Trump could use the same excuse for the duration of his term, The New York Times reported.

"All indications point to this being a hardware-related issue, not other factors".

Yet even some Republican lawmakers expressed frustration with the agency's performance Tuesday.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says Americans who have been unable to pay their taxes Tuesday because the IRS payment website is down will receive an extension when the site is working again.

Still, at least one lawmaker was irked by the trouble. "Hope it gets fixed".
