TurboTax Server Woes

I guess TurboTax wasn’t prepared for the massive amount of people trying to E-file yesterday in time for the April 17, Midnight cutoff time. The TurboTax Intuit support forums were a busy place last night. Looks like they were having server connection issues and many users could not connect. Intuit stated they were processing 50 to 60 returns per second. I guess 2007 is a record year for e-filing. The best part of the story has got to be the following quote from an AP story by company spokesman Harry Pforzeimer…

“Don’t wait until the last minute is the moral of the story,” he said.

I’ll continue to use TaxCut (and file early).
