Tax day is Tuesday and for many who haven't filed an extension, it's crunch time.
If you aren't filing online or through a tax preparer, the USPS has a handy tool to know what time your favorite post office will close.
Also, the USPS has a few mailing tips for you to remember:
- USE ENOUGH POSTAGE
Double-check your envelope. Does it weigh more than 1 oz? Tax returns without enough postage will be returned.
- LABEL WITH CORRECT, CLEAR ADDRESSES
Print labels on your computer or neatly write both the destination and return addresses. Not sure where to mail your federal tax return? Check with the IRS. (Here's a helpful link provided by the IRS to know where to file paper tax returns.)
-MAKE SURE YOUR RETURN IS POSTMARKED ON TIME
Mail your return in a Collection Box or at a Postal location that has a pickup time before the deadline.
Most of the post offices in the Fresno area are not staying open later so be sure to check the times to get those papers in before they close.
One last tip, if your worried about your taxes getting to their destination the USPS recommends you get an electronic, or physical, delivery record showing who signed for your tax return.
