Proscrastinators have one more day to finish their taxes.

The Internal Revenue Service announced Tuesday evening that it’s extending the deadline one day for taxpayers to file and pay their taxes.

The deadline is now the end of the day Wednesday.

The IRS blamed an outage in its electrical systems Tuesday morning but says the problems are resolved. 

Taxpayers should filed their taxes as normal tonight on paper or electronically.
