IRS Having Major Computer Issues

It looks like the IRS is having serious computer problems. The agency says that the hardware failure was bad enough to bring down several of its primary systems.

The IRS experienced a hardware failure this afternoon affecting a number of tax processing systems, which are currently unavailable. Several of our systems are not currently operating, including our modernized e-file system and a number of other related systems. The IRS is currently in the process of making repairs and working to restore normal operations as soon as possible. We anticipate some of the systems will remain unavailable until tomorrow.
