USPS: Mail Taxes Early!

 
USPS: Mail Taxes Early!
Posted April 14th, 2013 @ 12:00am by Gale Cunningham

The U.S. Postal Service advises taxpayers filing their tax returns the old-fashioned way to mail those returns early, if possible.

To assist last-minute tax filers on Monday, April 15th,  the federal and state deadline for filing income tax returns, the U.S. Postal Service will offer late mail pickup.   Post offices will have blue collection boxes in front of the Portland Main Post Office, 715 NW Hoyt St., until midnight.

For Salem and Eugene area customers, mail deposited in blue collection boxes in front of the Salem Main Post Office (1050 2550 25th St. SE) and Eugene Gateway Station (3148 Gateway St., Springfield) will also be collected until midnight on Monday, April 15th.

As an additional service, selected Post Offices in the Portland area with blue collection boxes in front will have mail collections until 9 p.m. These locations’ (listed below) collection boxes will be marked with a special yellow sign indicating the added collection time.

Customers using the Postal Service’s blue collection boxes elsewhere are urged to double-check the label on the box to ensure they deposit their envelopes prior to the last posted collection time. A reminder: IRS forms are not available at postal locations.

The USPS urges customers to avoid last-minute crowds and mail tax returns well before April 15th, or at least early that day. All Post Offices statewide will be open regular retail business hours on April 15th.

Customers should ensure they have the correct postage affixed to their returns. First-Class postage is 46 cents for the first ounce and 20 cents for each additional ounce. In addition to being available at Post Offices, stamps can be purchased at dozens of locations, including supermarkets and contract postal units. Locations may be looked up online at usps.com/taxes.
