Tax procrastinators, the U.S. Postal Service has your back.
Three Utah post offices will be extending their hours to give as many Utahns as possible a chance to get an April 15 postmark on their tax returns.
The locations and extended hours are:
Salt Lake Main, 1760 W. 2100 South, open until 8:15 p.m.
Provo East Bay, 936 S. 250 East, open until 10 p.m.
Cedar City, 333 N. Main St., open until midnight
A few more reminders to aid those filers who mail their returns:
Be sure to affix the right postage. To send letters first class, the cost is 46 cents for the first ounce and 20 cents for each additional ounce. If you use a larger envelope, first class postage is 92 cents for the first ounce and 20 cents for each additional ounce. And if you want to make sure the IRS received your return, mail it using certified mail, which costs extra.
Check the pickup time. Before you drop your envelope in a post box, make sure you haven't missed the collection times posted on the box.
Avoid the crowds. Lines will be shorter earlier in the day.
There also will also be self-serve kiosks available 24/7 at 30 Utah post office locations:
