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".
