NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service estimates that 600,000 Tennesseans have waited until April to file their federal income tax returns.

The IRS said in a news release Wednesday that Tennesseans have e-filed about 695,000 tax returns from their own computers, up 10.7 percent over this time last year.

With the April 18 filing deadline near, the agency said 169,000 taxpayers are expected to request a six-month filing extension.

IRS offices in Chattanooga, Jackson, Johnson City, Knoxville, Nashville and Memphis will be open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Filers whose income was $49,000 or less can get their taxes prepared and e-filed on a first-come, first-served basis.
