IRS Reports Glitch Delay Tax Refunds

Email  Print Print  

It seems the trusty Internet Revenue Service has experienced a bit of a hiccup this tax filing season. The IRS is reporting that a software “glitch” has delayed the processing of “several million taxpayers” as they try to upgrade their systems. After writing about how to get your tax refund faster, we didn’t account for software upgrades and how a “glitch” delayed so many. As always, you can still track your tax refund on the IRS website.

The IRS did re-iterate the timing differences for efiling vs. paper returns and for direct deposit vs. paper check. If you filed an electronic return with direct deposit, expect a refund in 7-13 days. Seventeen days for a mailed refund. Both are faster than last year.

    As an IT guy, I wonder why they were doing server upgrades during their busiest time of year . . . .

    It is unbelievable to think they would upgrade this time of year. They have 9 solid months of not-tax-season to do stuff like this.

    BTW Jim, I saw your article on Yahoo News the other day!

    I also find it hard to believe that the IRS would ‘choose’ this time of year for a software upgrade. Perhaps the glitch came first and, because of it, the unexpected upgrade was needed.
