BREAKING: The Internal Revenue Service’s system for accepting online tax returns is working again after being inoperational for much of the day Tuesday. IRS officials promised that people hampered by the technology failures would not be penalized for late returns, but they have not yet announced any specific exemptions to the deadline. This story will be updated.

The Internal Revenue Service’s online system for submitting tax returns experienced widespread failures on Tuesday, complicating filing for the millions of taxpayers attempting to meet the government’s midnight deadline.

“On my way over here this morning, I was told a number of systems are down at the moment,” IRS Acting Commissioner David J. Kautter told lawmakers at an oversight hearing Tuesday. “We are working to resolve the issue and taxpayers should continue to file as they normally would.”
