HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
A total of 28 Post Offices across the state will offer late collection of mail from specially marked collection boxes on federal Tax Day, Monday, Apr. 15, to accommodate last-second filers of federal tax returns.
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. 15 postmarks. Collection boxes and Post Office lobby drops at all other Post Offices will be collected only at their regular posted times on April 15.

Due to the declining numbers of citizens who submit hard-copy tax returns by mail, the Postal Service no longer provides curbside service to last-second filers of tax mail at its drive-by collection boxes.
The IRS reports that more than 88 million individual federal income tax returns had been filed as of Mar. 29. Of that total, almost 90 percent have been filed electronically. Last year more than 80 percent of the final total of 146 million federal tax returns submitted were filed electronically.
