…to file your tax return! It is April 15 which means you have until midnight (actually 11:59 p.m) tonight to file your tax return. You can find federal tax forms online at http://www.irs.gov/ and Arizona State income tax forms on the Department of Revenue’s website. Form 4868 can be used to file an extension for your federal tax return and Form 204 for your Arizona State return but be sure to read the instructions to see how they may apply to you.
The Arizona Republic published an interesting article yesterday about the history of the income tax in the United States. It may seem like income taxes have been around forever, but the 16th Amendment was ratified in 1913 which makes the income tax in the US 100 years old.
