If you've been waiting for the last minute to do the taxes - don't wait too much longer. Tax Day is Thursday April 15th and the United States Postal Service no longer offers extended hours. Spokesperson Tad Kelley said people often remember the days of long lines and extra hours and staff at the post office but that is no longer the case. Due to the drop in the economy and the rise in electronic mail the post office does not offer any special services on tax day and is open regular hours.
Kelley suggests mailing your taxes in earlier in the day and using automated postal machines. He also suggests weighing the forms and using a tracking services to ensure the forms get where they are going.
