Post office closing times vary on Tax D day

Procrastinators, take note.

If you haven’t either filed your federal income tax or filed for an extension, you have until 10 p.m. tonight in Glenwood Springs to do so.

The main post office will accept tax returns until 6 p.m. Between 6 and 10 p.m., tax returns may be dropped off at the Mail Processing Facility at 195 Center Drive in West Glenwood Springs.

However, items will not be weighed and stamps will not be sold at that location. Most tax packets take at least two 34-cent stamps.

At Rifle, late filers have until midnight to drop returns off at the collection drop at the main post office on Railroad Avenue.

For the most part, local post offices will not postmark mail any later than on any other business day. At Carbondale and New Castle, tax returns should be mailed no later than 4:30 p.m., at the main post offices, in order to guarantee the April 15 postmark.

The Silt post office will postmark mail until 5 p.m., as will the Parachute post office.

People mailing returns at Parachute must deliver them to the main office’s inside drop, and not at the Battlement Mesa station.
