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
