Can't Access Internal Revenue Service - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I've been trying to retrieve my IP PIN number for the past 3 days and it keeps saying "Technical Difficulty"... When I called and talked to a rep. she said the reason that keeps coming up is because 100s and 1000s of people are on the site at the same time which is causing the site to go into overload. You would think they... the "government" would find a way to fix this by now. Seems suspicious to me :/...

I filed my tax returns 1/22 and got the acceptance email from H&R Block stating it had been accepted by the IRS on 1/26.

HOWEVER, each and everytime I try to go on the website to review my refund status, it's constantly bringing up, "We cannot provide any information about your refund. You must wait at least 24 hours after you get the acknowledgement e-mail that your tax return was received by the IRS"

WHO ELSE IS EXPERIENCING THIS PROBLEM & HOW DO YOU FIX IT?!?! The whole time I tried, that is what shows up.

If you cannot access any information about your refund (orange bars disappeared), it means that your refund has been randomly selected for an additional review and will be processed accordingly. As for me, I'm in this situation. I have to wait one more additional week and this is really insane. My orange bars have disappeared and I can't access any information. I was also told to keep checking the website to see if any updates have occurred. We are not the only ones that are experiencing the same situation.
