Main post office to accept tax returns until midnight Wed.

Citizen Staff Writer



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 only accept 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 mail boxes Wednesday to first check the pickup times. Items mailed after collection will not be postmarked April 15.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
