Part of IRS online tax filing system down on Tax Day

Tax Deadline April 17th

"And if you don't make that payment, you can have a penalty and interest charges racking up for those six months", said Rebecca Walser, a tax attorney. Therefore, your new deadline becomes October 15th, 2018.

The IRS website where people can pay their taxes and access other key services has been down for most the day, frustrating last-minute tax filers.

But remember, an automatic extension to file is generally not an extension to pay. As a corporate tax specialist, Haney says the reason her company files extensions is to give themselves more time to gather information. Taxpayers using paper to file and pay their taxes at the deadline were not affected by the system issue.

The IRS is giving the public an extra day to file their taxes following the IT issues.

Also, if you filed in January or early February and claimed the refundable Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit, the IRS by law was not allowed to start sending that money out until February 15. Last year, the Internal Revenue Service expected about 13 million extension requests to be completed. Any tax liability is still due by the April 17 deadline.
