An Internal Revenue Service office will not return to the Texas building where a tax protester killed himself by crashing his plane into the structure.

IRS spokeswoman Lea Crusberg said Thursday that the agency has signed a two-year lease on another office space in Austin. She declined to identify the location.

Andrew Joseph Stack III on Feb. 18 flew his single-engine plane into the four-story structure. IRS worker Vernon Hunter also was killed. About 200 IRS employees worked in the building at that time.

The manager of the property, Kevin Kimball, says cleanup of the 64,000-square-foot structure is nearly done and repairs should be finished within six months.
