In Canada, a computer glitch worsens income tax headaches

CBC News is reporting that a computer glitch at the Canada Revenue Agency in Ottawa, Ont. has made tax season even more irritating for some Canadians. Sometime Sunday night or Monday morning, a system that accepts online submissions of tax returns was disabled, and last we heard, technicians were still trying to get the system back online. Canada's tax deadline is April 30, but businesses that prepare tax returns--like H&R Block--have said that the system failure has nevertheless been causing a backlog to build up.

In lieu of online filing, tax returns have had to be submitted individually by telephone instead.

Oh, technology.
