IRS Having One of Those Days

Richard Rubin reports that a "hardware failure" at the IRS has affected several systems and that Ted Cruz's favorite agency is "temporarily unable to process electronically filed tax returns." At least some of the older tax partners out there are enjoying this moment. [WSJ]

CPA Candidate Discovers That Scheduling an Exam on the Last Day of Testing Window Is a Bad Idea

The Prometric stories keep rolling in and I can't say I'm surprised. I'm hoarding a lot of the similar ones for my own purposes (namely writing an angry letter to the AICPA and NASBA on your behalf once we have enough ammo) but came across this one left in the comments last night: I CAN […]

NASBA Website Is Down UPDATE – They’re Back! (Sort of)

Now you’ve done it. Hot off the Twitter.

If you still haven’t seen your score and you’re interested in sharing some anxious thoughts or frustrations, you may do so now.

A Little Housekeeping

Good morning capital market servants. Pleasant Thursday, no? At least it’s natural disaster free, amiright? Oh, right. Irene. Nevermind.

You may have noticed a little warning from your browsers this morning concerning GC having a little malware. Google sent us a little heads up earlier this morning confirming the issue, so it’s just not you! They have various theories behind this including the site being “compromised” (I think that’s a nice way of saying “hacked”) but Adrienne is convinced that I brought something back from the red light district.

ANYWAY, right now all theories are on the table for investigation but I assure you, our team of tech-savvy youth are on the case as we…er…speak. The Internet is a crazy place so things like this are bound to happen once in a full moon on 11/11/11, so we ask that everyone please bear with us while we sort things out. We’ll keep you updated as things progress.

Thanks for your continued support of Going Concern.

UPDATE: Due to our difficulties, we’ll be skipping the Daily Grind today, so sorry if that’s the only thing that gets you out of bed in the morning. We’ll also refrain from posting until the issues have been fixed. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter where we’ll be wreaking havoc and giving you updates.
