IRS warns of higher penalty for returns filed after June 14

The Internal Revenue Service urges taxpayers who owe tax and have not filed their 2018 return to act before Friday, June 14, before a larger penalty kicks in.

The failure-to-file penalty is assessed if there is unpaid tax and the taxpayer fails to file a tax return or request an extension by the April due date. This penalty is usually 5 percent of tax for the year that’s not paid by the original return due date. The penalty is charged for each month or part of a month that a tax return is late. But, if the return is more than 60 days late, there is a minimum penalty, either $210 or 100 percent of the unpaid tax, whichever is less.

Mount Evans Highway opens

Mount Evans Highway (State Highway 5) is open to the public for the season as of Saturday afternoon. Mount Evans Highway will be open to the public as normal. Because of all the remaining snow surrounding the highway, motorists are reminded to take it slow, be aware, and drive safely on the roadway.

Mount Evans Highway typically is opened to the summit of Mount Evans (14,264 feet) for the summer on the Friday before Memorial Day. Due to multiple late spring snowfalls, the opening of the highway was delayed as maintenance crews with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) needed to continue clearing the highway of snow and ice to ensure safe road conditions for drivers visiting Mount Evans.

CDOT crews worked throughout the month of May clearing snow along the highway from the gates at Echo Lake Lodge to the summit of Mount Evans, which is the highest paved road in North America. The plowing process involves five different pieces of machinery to safely and efficiently clear the roadway of all snow and ice including a bulldozer, snow cat and snow blower..

Information regarding the opening and closing of seasonal roads can be found at all times at For more information about Mount Evans, visit
