We have tried pinging Internal Revenue Service website using our server and the website returned the above results. If irs.gov is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress.
Can’t Access Internal Revenue Service – Troubleshooting Instructions
If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:
Browser Related Problems
Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)
Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser.
Fix DNS Problems
A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.
Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows – (Start > Command Prompt > type “ipconfig /flushdns” and hit enter). For details choose your operating system.
If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it’s not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Firefox 47.0 on Windows
So very time consuming and frustrating. Trying to check refund status. Was a glich with our taxes due to an identity verification (accountant put old address on our tax form and caused a nightmare for us). Its been more than 2 months and we finally spoke with someone who could help us. Now, we are just waiting to see the outcome of the reprocessing of our return but phones tied up and everything takes hours and hours to do because you keep starting over, changing browsers and thinking the next time it’s going to let you in or give you some information.
