Tucson’s main post office to accept tax returns at drive-through until midnight Wednesday

Last-minute tax filers who plan to mail returns Wednesday night to get an April 15 postmark will have to pull into the parking lot at the main post office, 1501 S. Cherrybell Stravenue.

Last year, postal employees stood in the center turn lane in front of the post office to collect tax returns.

Not this year, Rob Soler, customer relations coordinator for the U.S. Postal Service, said in a news release.

Tax filers must drive into the post office parking lot off Cherrybell to hand off returns.

Postal employees will staff the drive-through service from 5 p.m. to midnight Wednesday and will accept only returns that have proper postage.

Full service inside the main post office will end at 8 p.m., but customers still may use the automated postal center inside to weigh and stamp their envelopes after 8, provided they have a debit or credit card.

Postage is 42 cents for the first ounce and 17 cents for each additional ounce.

Postal officials warn tax filers who plan to drop their returns into blue mailboxes Wednesday to first check the pickup times. Items mailed after collection will not be postmarked April 15.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
