Utah County residents looking for a place to deposit their tax returns on the evening of April 15 will have two late-night options.
The Orem Post Office, 222 W. Center in Orem, and the Provo East Bay Post Office, 936 S. 250 East in Provo, will accept tax returns as late as midnight on April 15 and will give the returns that day's postmark.Both post offices will have postal employees selling postage late in the evening. This temporary extension should help people still working on their taxes when the deadline arrives.
The postmasters also offer these tips:
- Make sure your return has the correct postage. The IRS and the State Tax Commission don't pay postage due, and the Postal Service can't deliver mail without postage on it. If your return does not have enough postage, it will be returned to you.
- Make sure your envelope is securely sealed. Loose flaps can get caught in processing equipment, and your envelope could be torn. This could also cause your return to fall out of its envelope.
- Make sure you include your return address on the envelope.
