Post Office Offers Extended Hours for Last-Minute Tax Procrastinators

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The U.S. Postal Service has long provided you with a convenient, reliable way to get your taxes delivered on time.

This year is no different.  But beware last-minute tax filers - only two Northern Ohio Post Offices will have extended hours today to accommodate last minute filers.

The following Post Offices will extend their hours on tax day:

Cleveland Main Post Office - 2400 Orange Ave, Cleveland (until Midnight).  At 3:30 p.m. the traffic flow in the customer parking will be reversed to facilitate easier drop-off.

Curbside collectors will be working until midnight to accept prepared returns with postage already affixed.

Akron Main Post Office - 675 Wolf Ledges Parkway, Akron (until 8:00 P.M.)

All other Post Offices, stations and branches will be open their normal hours.

Helpful hints:

· Consider using Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation if you want to confirm your return is delivered.

· Use Certified Mail if proof of mailing is required.

· Check the last pick-up time if mailing in a street collection box to make sure that your return will be collected later that day.

· If possible, mail your returns using the address labels or pre-addressed envelopes sometimes provided by local, state and federal agencies.

· Always include your return address.

· Make sure your tax return has sufficient postage. If you are mailing a number of supplementary forms and schedules with your return, the envelope is likely to weigh more than one ounce.

Note: tax agencies do not pay postage that is due. Short-paid mail is returned to sender.

· Oversized and extra thick envelopes may require additional postage.
