It is Tax Deadline Day. In years past, the Omaha Postal Service workers offered refreshments and stood in front of the downtown post office to take your IRS forms for mailing. That isn’t happening this year. Postal spokesman Roger Humphries says there isn’t a big demand for that service anymore. He says the Postal service has determined approximately 30-percent of all Americans will file by mail. The rest have e-filed.
Humphries says other changes include the only branch that will stay open until midnight this year is the main Post Office at 11th and Pacific Streets. All other branches in Omaha will close at the regular times.
The Postal Service also reminds those mailing their tax returns to make sure there is adequate postage on the envelope. Otherwise the IRS will return it postage due and your filing will be considered late.
