This is drop-dead tax deadline

Still haven’t filed your taxes? You’re nearly a day late – and dollars short? – if you requested an extension.

Monday is the deadline – for those who postponed filing their 2006 federal income tax returns in April – to get paperwork to the IRS.

Nationwide, 10.2 million taxpayers requested an automatic six-month extension this year, according to the Internal Revenue Service. Many, including about 213,500 Arizonans, have yet to file their returns as of the beginning of October.

The federal agency warns that nonfilers face interest and penalty charges – and, possibly, criminal prosecution.

Online filing of tax returns is available via www.irs.gov. A record 58 percent of all 2006 returns were filed electronically.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
