Greensboro, NC -- The U.S. Postal Service is urging customers to file their taxes early as the April 15 deadline quickly approaches.
The USPS will not offer extended hours on the evening of April 15 to accept late tax returns; all Triad post offices will close at their normal times.
There are eight 24-hour Automated Postal Centers in the area (listed below), which will also be available to those filing taxes. However, it is important to note that APCs do not provide proof of mailing as the date of the sale on the receipt does not necessarily represent the mailing date.
USPS is encouraging customers to mail their tax returns as early in the day as possible on April 15. Those mailing tax returns should also weigh packages at a local post office to ensure proper postage.
Last year, 77 percent of Americans used e-filing to complete their taxes, and consumers filed 143 million returns, both electronically and by mail.
