Indiana is extending the state tax-filing deadline for those trying to use its clogged online system.

A technology glitch slowed the state’s I-File system, and last-minute tax filers created a bottleneck yesterday. The Indiana Department of Revenue has extended the I-File state tax deadline until midnight Sunday.

Revenue Commissioner John Eckart said today he regrets the situation and hopes the extension will restore taxpayer faith in the online filing system.

Some taxpayers also had trouble with the state’s ePay system yesterday. The Department of Revenue says it will contact those who couldn’t use the system to inform them of how to pay. They will not be subject to fees or penalties.
