The Internal Revenue Service says its processing systems are back up and running after they went down on Tuesday, which was the filing deadline for 2018.

The IRS said in a statement it has accepted more than 14 million tax submissions since processing systems reopened.

The Tuesday morning system outage was caused by a hardware issue. Teams worked through the night to get the systems going again, Acting Commissioner David Kautter said.
