Post Offices Prepare for Tax Day
Laramie, Wy – Post offices in some states around the country are no longer staying open late on tax day, which is Friday. But, here in Wyoming everything is staying the same. A spokesperson for the Postal Service, Al DeSarro says the main post offices in Cheyenne, Casper, Wheatland and Rawlins will accept tax forms until midnight. All the other offices are keeping normal hours.
DeSarro says the Postal Service predicts ten percent of all mailers will send in their taxes on Friday.
He reminds people to check the addresses, postage, and arrive at the post office early because it is one of the busiest days of the year for the Postal Service.
DeSarro says more and more people are filing taxes electronically. He says nationwide only 50 percent of tax payers are mailing their tax forms, down from 65 percent only a few years ago.
DeSarro says Cheyenne and Casper also have some of the most festive offices in the country on tax day; offering PayDay candy bars for people getting a return and Zero bars for those who have to pay.
