Post Offices extend hours for tax deadline

Postal Service-Courtsey USPS Postal Service-Courtsey USPS
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

With the 2015 tax filing deadline quickly approaching, Mississippi Post Offices will extend their hours for last minute tax filers on April 15th.

On the 15th, the retail lobby at the Hattiesburg Post Office will close at 6:00 p.m., stamp booklet sales and postmarking of tax returns will be offered from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the dutch door in the lobby.

These hours are extended past the usual 6:00 p.m. closing time and the Self Service Kiosks will also be available for customers.

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

A few tips for income tax filers mailing their returns:

-If filing on 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 on 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. 

-One ounce for letter size returns is 49 cents for stamp postage, 48 cents for metered postage. The second and third ounces are an additional 21 cents for each ounce, regardless of postage type. Large envelopes or letters weighing over 3.5 ounces are subject to an oversize rate of 98 cents for one ounce and 21 cents per additional ounce. 

-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.
