PHOENIX (CBS5) -

For those taxpayers who put off filing their tax return and asked for an extension, the IRS is reminding that there are only a few days left to get it in.

The IRS said close to 240,000 Arizona taxpayers still need to file last year's returns - that's almost 10 percent of all Arizona residents filing returns for 2011.

The feds urge people to file electronically by Oct. 15.
