Tax Deadline Extended To Midnight Wednesday

If you were one of the many Americans scrambling to get their taxes done last night but either forgot, or had trouble, you have one more day to get them done!

 Due to a partial crash on the IRS website, the deadline to file taxes is at midnight tonight. The agency's website for making payments and gaining access to other key services was down due to what was later described as a "high-volume technical issue."

The website was back online late Tuesday.

The IRS says no additional paperwork is needed to get the one-day extension.

The IRS typically recommends that taxpayers use electronic filing to avoid common mistakes. Online filing is quicker than dropping something in the mail — when the site works, that is.
