Procrastinators beware: You only have one more day to put off filing your 2011 tax return.
April 17 is the filing deadline. Should you wait until then to submit a paper application, you will want to make sure it’s postmarked before the Post Office in or closes for the day.
Post Office officials said the local facilities will have regular hours on Tuesday, which is tax day. Hatboro will be open from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., while Horsham’s hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
If you’d like to forego the long lines at the Post Office, you could join the nearly 80 percent of taxpayers who, according to the IRS, use IRS e-file to submit tax returns.
Worried you may have put off tax preparation too long? The IRS allows for a six-month extension to file, meaning your new filing deadline would be Oct. 15. However, keep in mind that if you owe the IRS money, interest will be charged to payments not received by April 17.
