IRS experiencing system outages, could cause slight tax delay for some – Where’s My Refund down!

The IRS experienced some serious system outages earlier today. These outages could slightly delay some tax refunds in 2016. Where’s My Refund down for now according to the IRS.

The IRS experienced a hardware failure this afternoon affecting a number of tax processing systems, which are currently unavailable. Several of our systems are not currently operating, including our modernized e-file system and a number of other related systems. The IRS is currently in the process of making repairs and working to restore normal operations as soon as possible. We anticipate some of the systems will remain unavailable until tomorrow.

This means that many who file today(February 3rd, 2016) Where's My Refund down

will not see their refund processed today. This could also slow down the next week of 2015 tax return processing.

A number of taxpayer and tax practitioner tools are unavailable. IRS.gov remains available, although a number of the services on the site are not, including Where’s My Refund.

Where’s my Refund is currently unavailable and we do not have notice of when the service will be up. The IRS still recommends taxpayers to continue filing, but there will be a slight tax delay on some refunds filed the next few days.

Taxpayers can continue to prepare and file their tax returns as they normally would. Taxpayers can continue to send their tax returns to their e-file provider; these companies will hold the tax returns until the IRS resumes accepting electronic tax returns. Taxpayers who have already filed their tax returns do not need to take any additional action.

The IRS still expects the majority of taxpayers to have their tax refund within 21 days of filing.

The IRS is still assessing the scope of the outage. At this time, the IRS does not anticipate major refund disruptions; we continue to expect that 9 out of 10 taxpayers will receive their refunds within 21 days.

As a small note, the official start of tax season was January 19th, 2016, so you cannot begin counting the 21 days until after this date no matter if you were accepted early for testing purposes.
