But wait, there's more. In their annual Tax Day press release, the USPS reminds taxpayers that when it comes to settling up with the IRS, they offer "the priceless commodities of privacy and sanctity of the mail at no extra cost -- without using tax dollars." Oh yeah, got stamps?
On a more serious note, if you live in Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, or the District of Columbia, your tax return will be considered properly filed on time if postmarked by April 17 -- or April 18. Post Offices in those states will be closed on April 17 in observance of Patriotsí Day. And before you rush off to mail your return, let the USPS tell you how much postage you'll need, and which Post Offices will be open late.
