And as if the IRS weren’t enough of a steaming pile of fail, now comes this:
Just in time for tax day: the IRS website to make payments is down. https://t.co/FTrXVKCA9p

The most IRS thing possible https://t.co/tuw3X7tq3y

It gets better, though:

If the plan is to confuse the hell out of people in addition to screwing them over, then yes. Mission accomplished!
Check out those dates!

The dates don't make sense.

Those are some rough dates.

So from now until 2 years ago…WINNING!

So in order to pay our taxes we need to go back in time? Works for me.

I'm not convinced 7,981 years is enough time for the IRS to get its act together https://t.co/uxklUhdoh0

Definitely not enough time. The IRS is incapable of being anything other than a dumpster fire.

This competency definitely makes me feel awesome about the check I just wrote to this agency. https://t.co/I5HOC880QQ

The moral to the story?
— Jerry Dunleavy (@JerryDunleavy) April 17, 2018
JUST IN: IRS says it will give U.S. taxpayers an additional day to file returns after "system issues" Tuesday; new deadline to file is now Wednesday: "Taxpayers do not need to do anything to receive this extra time." pic.twitter.com/dy1LGKvdWx

A better solution would for them to abolish themselves and let taxpayers keep their money.
Oh well. We can dream, can’t we?
