The Interenal Revenue Service announced today that it was giving an extra day to file taxes for the year 2017. 

Tax due date was today, April 17th, 2018. The IRS said that taxpayers who were filing taxes and making payments on today Tuesday, April 17th, now had an extra day untill midnight Wednesday, April 18th, to file taxes.

For taxpayers who had waited till the last day today  to file taxes, there were issues: the IRS website was down today. System glitch made it imposible for taxpayers to pay taxes and file taxes. So IRS gave an extra-day to everybody.

Everybody got an additional day. There was no need to file any paperwork to get the extra-day to file taxes.
