IRS give tax filers one more day, thanks to glitch

Reuters

The IRS advised taxpayers to continue to file their taxes as normal Tuesday evening - whether electronically or on paper.

Also, some good news if you forgot to pay your taxes: The IRS is giving Americans until midnight to file their taxes after its website crashed Tuesday.

At this time of year, many people file their taxes through tax software programs, such as Turbo Tax, and the IRS said "these online payment options remain available for taxpayers through their software providers during this period".

The IRS granted an extension through midnight tonight (April 18) to file returns because of the outage.

The IRS said that at this point, the problem appears to be a hardware issue.


Kentuckians have an extra day to fill out their taxes.

The IRS did not give an immediate explanation for the failure but said in a statement that "certain IRS systems are experiencing technical difficulties". Among the areas that he said were underfunded were the agency's aging information systems. Political leaders weighed in publicly as well. "We don't want taxpayers and middle-class folks and small businesses penalized".

Trump touted the business-friendly tax overhaul that the GOP-led Congress passed late past year.

The IRS typically recommends that taxpayers use electronic filing to avoid common mistakes.
