The clock is ticking toward the tax deadline. 

The federal income tax filing date was pushed back to Monday because April 15th was a local holiday in Washington.  Massachusetts taxpayers have until Tuesday to file their federal and state tax returns because Monday is Patriots Day, a state holiday.

Individual income taxes are the largest single source of revenue for the federal government.  To find out how the money gets spent, WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Lindsay Koshgarian, research director for the National Priorities Project, a Northampton-based research center that tracks federal spending.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
