I recently received this from my software vendor.

The IRS sent the following announcement regarding the annual Columbus Day power outage:

"The IRS will conduct its annual Columbus Day Power Outage beginning Saturday, October 11, 2014, at 3:00 PM EDT until 5:00 AM EDT on Tuesday, October 14, 2014.

Returns received after 3:00 PM EDT on Saturday, October 11, 2014, will be sent to the IRS after service is restored on Tuesday, October 14, 2014."

Well then, I better get to work!

I want to “push the button” before the computers close on the weekend before extensions are due.

I wonder who schedules these outages at the IRS?
