Each morning, Westborough Patch presents “5 Things You Need to Know,” a collection of announcements, events, reminders and odd little ditties to help you organize your day. What will you be doing today?

According to Mass.gov, nearly 1.3 million tax filers out of an estimated 3.4 million have yet to file their state income tax. Massachusetts tax returns are due on April 17 because April 15 is a Sunday and April 16 is Patriot's Day.
