2013 Tax Day procrastinators had a scare last night when Turbo Tax went off-line hours before the 1040 individual taxpayer filing deadline.
Last night, just before 11 p.m. EDT, the online tax filing giant started to get complaints that its system was not working, to which it Tweeted, "We're having problems with TurboTax online. We're in process bringing back the experience u expect. Updates 2 follow."
About an hour later, to the relief of last minute online tax filers, Turbo Tax tweeted again, "Good news - TurboTax [dot] com is back online and functional. For those still having issues, please try closing your browser and go back to turbotax dot com in a fresh window."
