The IRS reported a "hardware failure" Wednesday afternoon. It didn’t explain how or why the problem occurred, only that it affected several systems, including the online filing system.

The "Where’s My Refund" feature on the site also went down, so you over-achievers who have already filed and are tracking your return, you’ll have to check your mailbox for the time being.

The IRS assures taxpayers can still prepare their returns as normal, but it just can’t accept electronic returns for now. 

There’s no word on when the system might be fixed, but we’re guessing whoever the IRS brings in will probably be feeling the pressure to solve the problem fast.
