Gainesville post offices not extending hours for Tax Day
Marc Whiteman reported for WUFT-TV.
Today is Tax Day, which means it’s the last day you can send in your taxes or request an extension, without receiving penalties.
Post offices in Gainesville will not be extending their hours today as they have in the past, according to Stephen Seewoester, spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service. This is because fewer people are waiting until today to mail in their returns and most are doing it online, he said.
The latest you can drop off your return and have it postmarked for today is:
- 7 p.m. at the General Mail Facility on Southwest 34th Street
- 6 p.m. at the location on Northwest 16th Boulevard
- 5 p.m. at both the Northwest First Avenue and North Main Street locations
To check hours or locate your nearest post office, visit USPS.com.
