Part of IRS online tax filing system down on Tax Day
Part of the Internal Revenue Service’s online system for tax returns appears to be down. According The Washington Post and reports on social media, the IRS’ "Modernized eFile System" is down as of about noon Tuesday.
That means some tax returns filed through service such as TurboTax and H&R Block may not be making it over to the IRS. The "direct pay" option for filers to pay owed taxes directly from their bank account is also currently down, according to a notice on the IRS website.
