The website appeared to be back to normal late Tuesday. Millions of Americans wait until today to file their federal taxes. The website has been down most of the day and wasn't operational as of 4:30 p.m. It wasn't a very happy Tax Day for the IRS, which announced it was "experiencing technical difficulties" with some computer systems and temporarily couldn't accept returns from tax preparers, including big filers like TurboTax and H&R Block.
