(AP) – Tax procrastinators, rejoice! Just when you thought you had blown through yesterday’s deadline for filing your federal taxes, you now have another day to get the chore done. The reason is that the IRS website crashed yesterday – and people trying to file in time for the deadline found that the part of the site for making payments and gaining access to other key services was out of commission. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin describes the problem as a “high-volume technical issue.” Meanwhile the site is back up to speed – and last-minute filers can use these last few hours to get square with Uncle Sam.
