IRS extends tax filing deadline after website glitch

IRS extends tax filing deadline after website glitch

Department of Revenue Director Mike Kadas said Wednesday the state did receive the returns of residents who filed electronically on Tuesday. The website appeared to be back to normal late Tuesday.

The state of MI and city of Detroit are giving taxpayers an extra day to file - following the lead of the IRS after its website went down on deadline day.

Americans have an extra day to file their taxes.

"It's clear from today's events that the IRS needs adequate funding to protect and operate its IT systems", said Representative Richard E. Neal (D-MA). But the agency still expects Americans to pay their taxes on time.

The IRS encountered system issues Tuesday morning.


Did you have difficulty filing your taxes yesterday?

It's unclear when and why the failure occurred. And another that the outage was due to planned maintenance scheduled to end on September 22, 2016.

The IRS snafu also caused problems for popular third-party tax preparers such as Turbo Tax and H&R Block.

The IRS said that, as of 9 a.m. Wednesday, it had accepted more than 14 million tax submissions since its systems were restored.
