HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A state computer system that shutdown access to car tag information Monday is back up and running.

The glitch originated when the Department of Information and Technology Services made an upgrade to the aging system during it's routine change over to daylight savings time. According to the executive director the changes were rolled back and the system loss was corrected.

There was a lot of frustration at the Hinds County Tax Collectors office Monday as people wanting to pay for or renew car tags were turned away.

Hinds County Tax Collector Eddie Fair said his office could only process property taxes. He tried to explain the problem to many residents who were inconvenienced. The system was down for several hours.

Some taxpayers walked away in frustration.

"It just makes me feel a little, a little frustrated to have to constantly feed the meter and there is no exact time and no way they can accommodate me standing here," Eve Locke said.
