Taxpayers who couldn’t electronically file 11th-hour returns using Intuit Inc.’s TurboTax, ProSeries and other software won’t be penalized for delays caused by the company’s overtaxed servers, the IRS said Wednesday.

“We will do everything we can to assist taxpayers affected by the situation,” said IRS spokesman Bruce Friedland. “If people couldn’t e-file last night, we encourage them to file as soon as they can.”
