Tax-season procrastinators have enjoyed a few extra days this year to get their returns in the mail, but the U.S. Postal Service will still be ready for those who insist on waiting to the very last minute, offering extended hours at select Southland post offices on Tuesday's deadline.
The deadline for mailing tax returns would normally be Monday, since April 15 falls on Saturday, but Monday is Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia, so the tax deadline has been pushed until Tuesday.
For people who still wait until the last minute, extended hours will be offered at the following USPS centers on Tuesday night:
- the Los Angeles Processing & Distribution Center, 7001 S. Central Ave., with mail collection until midnight;
- the Santa Ana Processing & Distribution Center, 3101 W. Sunflower Ave., with mail collection until midnight; and
- the Santa Clarita Processing & Distribution Center, 28201 Franklin Parkway, with mail collection until 9 p.m.
All post office retail lobbies will adhere to their normal business hours on Tuesday.
