HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Twenty-eight post offices across the state are offering late collection of mail from specially marked collection boxes on federal Tax Day, Tuesday, Apr. 17, to accommodate last-second filers of federal tax returns.
Taxpayers have until Apr. 17 to file their 2011 returns and pay any taxes due because Apr. 15 falls on a Sunday and Emancipation Day, a holiday in the District of Columbia, is observed this year on Monday, April 16.
This year, the Honolulu's Airport (Main) Post Office is opening an express line, at the side will call window, for simple Tax Day transactions such as purchasing stamps and Certified Mail services. The express line will be open from noon to 8 p.m. on Tax Day only.
All Post Offices will be closing at their regular times. The Airport Post Office in Honolulu will be the last to close-at 8 p.m.--on that night and will be the best bet for last-second customers who need to purchase stamps or special services.
The 28 Post Offices listed below will have collection boxes and/or lobby drop slots labeled with special bright orange signs indicating Tax Mail Drop - Final Pick-Up Midnight. Tax forms with correct postage deposited in those specially designated boxes and slots by midnight will receive Apr. 17 postmarks. Collection boxes and Post Office lobby drops at all other Post Offices will be collected only at their regular posted times on April 17.
