THE BRONX - It's down to the wire for last-minute tax filers to get their tax returns postmarked and on the way to Uncle Sam by Tuesday.

Filers were given two extra days this year as today marks Emancipation Day, a holiday in Washington that celebrates the freeing of slaves in the district.

The IRS also provided taxpayers with several high-tech ways to get questions answered this tax season, including an app, YouTube videos, and Facebook and Twitter accounts.
