+ - TurboTax Meltdown on Tax Day

Submitted by sfjoe
sfjoe writes: Intuit says as many as 100,000 users of TurboTax may have had their IRS filings delayed due to server overload. A story in the San Francisco Chronicle says, "Intuit blamed the problem on an unexpected increase in e-filing, which overloaded its computer system". Intuit has gotten the IRS to give e-filers a break. On the TurboTax site, they say, "Intuit customers using TurboTax software to electronically file their U.S. federal income taxes won't be penalized as long as they e-file their returns by midnight April 19th".
