The Department of Revenue says as of Thursday, more than 2 million taxpayers had filed their returns either electronically or by paper. That represents a little over three-fifths of the 3.3 million Arizona returns filed for 2015. 

The vast majority of Arizonans file electronically. 

Taxpayers havethroughTuesday to file because the usual deadline of April 15 falls on a Saturday this year and becauseMondayApril 17 is when Emancipation Day is being observed in Washington D.C.
