Turbo Tax went offline as 2013 Tax Day US procrastinators had a scare last night when Turbo Tax apparently crashes hours before the 1040 individual taxpayer filing deadline.

Just before 11 p.m. EDT, the online tax filing giant started to get complaints that its system was not working. Officials Tweeted, "We're having problems with TurboTax online. We're in process bringing back the experience u expect. Updates 2 follow."

Approximately one hour later Turbo Tax tweeted again, "Good news - is back online and functional. For those still having issues, please try closing your browser and go back to in a fresh window.

Tonight is the deadline... Procrastinators may experience a similar situation because the definition will never change... One who puts off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness, laziness, postpones or delays needlessly.
