Visit Tucson to Promote Direct Flights Between Tucson and New York City

Visit Tucson ambassadors will be stationed at John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport in New York City this week to let travelers know about the new nonstop flights between Tucson and New York.

They will be offering yoga classes, chair massages, and indoor cycling classes in the American Airlines terminal to let travelers know what Tucson has to offer. Visit Tucson also is running ads to drum up interest in the flights that begin Oct. 7. Passengers will have to watch the ads before connecting to free WiFi.

Arizona Offers Tax Amnesty Program

The State of Arizona is offering a penalty-free plan to people who haven't paid sales or income taxes due before 2014, if they come forward and promise to pay. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey recently signed the Arizona Tax Recovery Program (amnesty) law, but it's only retroactive to that period, and future amnesty programs are not guaranteed.
