The Regional Income Tax Agency is Ohio giving taxpayers an extra week to file.

Due to problems with RITA’s phone system and website — this years tax filing deadline is being extended to April 21, 2014.

The government agency released the following news release Tuesday afternoon:

At the height of the tax season the Regional Income Tax Agency is facing the challenge of unprecedented demand for filing services. The Agency has responded with increases in Internet bandwidth and phone coverage which has improved the taxpayers’ access.

Since midnight today, about 10,000 tax forms have been filed electronically; starting at 8:00 a.m., over 200 phone calls have been answered each hour and over 100 taxpayers have been served hourly in person at RITA’s office locations.
