A Texas building where a tax protester killed himself by flying his small plane into the structure continues to be repaired a year later.

Friday was the first anniversary of the fiery crash into the Austin building where the Internal Revenue Service had offices.

The Austin American-Statesman reports new tenants could start moving into the multi-story building by the end of 2011.

Andrew Joseph Stack III died in the Feb. 18, 2010, crash he caused by flying his single-engine plane into Echelon I. An IRS worker, Vernon Hunter, was at work and was killed.

Kevin Kimball with KVA Inc., a management company that operates the building, says the damaged structural steel has been replaced.

Kimball says the next step is replacing the glass curtain wall exterior, followed by interior work.
