IRS gives Boston-area taxpayers more time

WASHINGTON -- The Internal Revenue Service says Boston-area taxpayers need time to finish their tax returns without worry.

Noting the tragedy of the explosions Monday at the Boston Marathon that killed three and injured more than 100, the IRS said it will be providing individual tax filing and payment extensions. Details will be announced Tuesday.

Two bombs exploded in the packed streets near the finish line of the marathon on Monday. A senior U.S. intelligence official said two other bombs were found near the end of the 26.2-mile course.
