IRS struggling to accept electronic filing

Hopefully most of the BHs have filed. But if you haven't yet I'd don't wait too long today.

The post office still seems to be open...

Why hopefully? I will be submitting my taxes later today. No sweat. Fortunately the PO will be open down the street from my office and I know when it closes. I do all my taxes by hand though so this electronic filing problem seems to be no biggie.

The issue was with the direct pay system. The IRS has announced a one day extension.
