Last Minute Tax-Filing? Extended Post Office Hours and More


Isn't it weird that there isn't a central list of post offices at, oh I don't know, say,, that tells you which post office branches are going to be open late tonight for last-minute filers? Or is there a list and I simply couldn't find it (possible)?

Here's a partial list. Feel free to add your own in the comments section. These are remarkably difficult to find.

Thanks to the Consumerist for some of the links.

Avoid the post office altogether by filing online for free.

General Post Office hours can be searched for here.

I was looking for 20 minutes, called the number for the post office, listened to the news and could not get what I thought would be readily available information.

Thanks for providing the information that the post office didn't!

Way to find that info! It's remarkably difficult to find stuff for LA - it seems like local news sources are often the best information sources for this kind of thing.

Happy filing! And don't forget that today is free ice cream day at Ben & Jerry's.
