Did you wake up Tuesday morning in a minor panic because you hadn't filed your taxes yet and then have a mild breakdown when filing didn't go quite as smoothly as you had hoped?

Well, fret no more! The IRS is giving you another day to file your taxes. The move comes after the direct pay page on the agency's website crashed Tuesday, just hours before the deadline to file. That's the page where you can transfer money from a bank account to pay any taxes you owe. It's not clear what caused that outage.

Individuals and businesses now have until Wednesday night to get their taxes done.
