American taxpayers have an extra day to pay their 2017 taxes. The IRS on Tuesday extended the filing deadline to midnight on Wednesday after an e-filing glitch. Earlier in the day, a notice on the IRS website told users the site was down for a “planned outage” until Dec. 31, 9999, but noted the agency still expected Americans to pay their taxes on time. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said Tuesday the outage was a “high-volume technical issue.” The site was back up and working by Tuesday evening.
