Happy Tax Day! The USPS will offer late mail collection today

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Good news, procrastinators: The USPS has your back.

On Tuesday, (also known as Tax Day) 27 post offices statewide will offer late mail collection to accommodate last-minute filers.

Important to note: All post offices in Hawaii will be closing at their regular time on Tax Day.

The Airport Post Office is the last to close — 8 p.m. — and would be the best bet for those who need help sending off their post.

But 27 post offices will have blue collection boxes or in-wall mail slots marked "Tax Mail Drop." The final pick-up from those boxes will be midnight, which will ensure they're postmarked by April 17.

Unlike years past, all post offices in Hawaii will be closing at their regular times, meaning there is no extended longer hours of operation or curbside service at drive-by collection boxes.

Officials say that's because of a significant decline in the number of people who submit hard-copy tax returns by mail. According to the IRS, more than 92 percent of tax returns filed nationwide so far this year have been submitted electronically.
