A massive DDoS attack disabled the Financial Administration’s web services and limited the Tax Portal’s functionality for tens of minutes yesterday. Services were fully restored by 1 PM, according to the Financial Administration on social network X. Despite yesterday being the final day to file income tax returns through a tax advisor, returns can be filed without penalty until Tuesday, July 9, 2024.

The Financial Administration reassured that the law accommodates such disruptions, allowing returns to be submitted without penalty by the new deadline. While the deadlines for in-person and electronic filing passed in the spring, today’s deadline was for those filing through a tax preparer. Nearly 2.82 million tax returns had been filed by June 30, close to the total expected. Last year, 2.89 million returns were filed, with the majority now submitted electronically.
