Area post offices to extend hours for tax filers Friday

April 12, 2005

Some post offices plan to help last-minute tax-return filers meet the April 15 deadline by extending their hours Friday.

The main post offices in Baltimore and Frederick will stay open until midnight. In Annapolis, the main post office will remain open until 10 p.m.

The Glen Burnie, Columbia, Cumberland, Hagerstown, Bel Air, Ellicott City and Easton post offices will be open until 8 p.m.

Pikesville's post office will be open until 7 p.m.

The Severna Park, Catonsville, Halethorpe, Nottingham, Clarksville, Pasadena and Reisterstown post offices will be open until 6 p.m.

The Owings Mills, Havre de Grace, Westminster and Linthicum post offices will be open until 5:30 p.m.

The IRS accepts a postmark as a sign of an on-time filing. Several post offices in the region have 24-hour automated postal centers that produce a dated postmark in the postage label.

Tax preparation services will not be available this year at the Baltimore or Annapolis post offices.
