Update: Not So TurboTax

The IRS has confirmed that it will not penalize people who missed the midnight deadline due to delays in the online TurboTax service. Intuit's servers were processing scores of returns every second, according to the company, but experienced delays of several hours for many customers, which meant many missed the midnight point of no return.

The agency also took the opportunity to remind citizens that if they haven't filed yet, they should still do so. In other words, it's never too late, and that dog-ate-my-server excuse isn't going to cut it.
