Postal News: Area post offices prepared for last-minute filers

April 15, 2015
By PHIL WIEBOLD , Lehigh Acres Citizen

The 2015 tax filing deadline is fast approaching and post offices are ready for last-minute tax filers today, April 15.

The IRS accepts the First-Class postmark as proof of filing by today, April 15.

The Postal Service provides these tips for income tax filers mailing returns:

- If filing today, April 15, mail early in the day at any post office. Be sure to verify post office hours of operation.

- If depositing returns in a collection box today, April 15, double-check the pick-up schedule on the collection box. To ensure getting the April 15 postmark, deposit returns before the last scheduled pick-up time.

- Affix the correct postage. Some returns include many forms and require additional postage. IRS does not pay postage due and will return items to sender.

- When possible, use the envelope provided by the IRS and be sure to include a return address. If the envelope provided by the IRS is unavailable, be sure to verify the IRS address where returns should be mailed.

Customers can use the PO Locator to find post office locations that will be open late to postmark tax return.
