Georgia Department Of Revenue – The Georgia Department of Revenue’s website is running once again after the site experienced some outages recently. The outages stopped many taxpayers from looking up tax information and filing their state income taxes. This was a major inconvenience for many taxpayers as we inch closer to the filing deadline. When the site first came back up, certain pages and applications that are built into the website were not available. However, many of the tax related applications were quickly fixed to allow users to access all of the necessary information in order to file their income taxes.
The timing for the outages was terrible, as this is one of the busiest times of the year for the Department of Revenue and their website. The deadline is coming up on Thursday, and tens of thousands of citizens are hurrying to turn in their information. It is assumed that a rush of traffic to the website to file their tax information could have broken or overloaded the server that hosts the website. Fortunately, the Department of Revenue in Georgia was quick to fix the mistake and immediately released a statement declaring that they were working on the problem and it can be expected to be fixed sometime in the near future.
