The confusing ritual of preparing tax returns generated 342,057,461 visits to IRS.gov (as of April 6).[1] That reflects a 24 percent increase over the comparable period in 2017.

Annually, the site generates 2.2 billion page views.[2]

From Jan. 29 through April 6, 103,762,000 individual tax returns had already been filed.[1] But the final 10 days of the filing season will be even busier for the IRS. A total of 155 million returns are expected.

Normally, income taxes are due by April 15. However, that falls on a Sunday this year. And April 16 is Emancipation Day, an official holiday in Washington, D.C., pushing the deadline back to April 17.[3]
