IRS systems are back up and running; millions of tax returns accepted; Taxpayers have until midnight Wednesday to file their taxes

IR-2018-101, April 18, 2018

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service said today the agency’s processing systems are fully back up and running.

As of 9 a.m. today, the IRS has accepted more than 14 million tax submissions since processing systems reopened following a Tuesday morning system outage caused by a hardware issue.

“IRS teams worked hard throughout the night,” Acting Commissioner David Kautter said. “We are back up and running. The overnight performance means that the IRS is current with all of the tax submissions, and no backlog remains.”

The IRS reminds taxpayers they have until Wednesday night to file and pay their taxes. As the midnight April 18 deadline approaches, the IRS reminds taxpayers that help is available at IRS.gov, including automatic six-month extensions to file.

“The IRS appreciates the patience from taxpayers as well as the help and support of the nation’s tax professionals and software transmitters during this period,” Kautter said.
