Some were happy for the extra day to file, others saw an excuse to drag out their favorite "Office Space" memes (watch Slide 2), and still others photocopied their butts to fax to the IRS. Many tax pros noted that they already had plans for April 18 (like screening "Black Panther," or sleeping) and that nothing would drag them back into the office.
But it wasn't all good-natured resignation: Many saw it as yet another reason to hate their political enemies, whether on the left or the right, and even more believed it was a clear demonstration of government incompetence.
With all that in mind, here's a selection of representative responses from across the Internet, including some of our editors' favorites.
If the IRS gives everyone 1 extra day to file their taxes because of their huge glitch yesterday, but no CPAs are working today, then does it really make any difference?

Since the IRS is extending tax filing time...we are adding one more day of price reductions to help alleviate a little stress! Two great tax deals to choose from!— Minsky's Pizza (@MinskysPizza) April 18, 2018
