THE Australian Taxation Office website has crashed, leaving the Federal Government to frantically try to restore it.
The website has been down for more than two hours today.
It’s unknown what caused the technical glitch which forced the site shutdown about 9.50am AEDT.
In a message to users online, the website left a message which stated:
“You have tried to access the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) website.
“Our website is currently not available.
“We apologise for the inconvenience and assure you of our commitment to provide you with the best possible experience of using our online services.
“We thank you for your patience as we work to restore our services.”

The ATO has promised personal details haven’t been compromised after its website crashed.
A spokeswoman from the ATO told News Corp Australia that “hardware issues” were to blame for the website collapse.
“These issues are not being caused by any external factors. No taxpayer information has been compromised,” she said.
“All available resources are working to resolve these issues as a priority.
“We apologise for any inconvenience taxpayers have experienced. We will advise when these issues have been resolved.”
