It's Tax Time!! U.S.P.S. Hours on April 15 for NWA & Fort Smith

You have until midnight on April 15 to get your taxes in, but local Post Offices will not stay open that late.
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -- Have you filed your taxes yet?  Well, you have until midnight on April 15 to get them in, but local Post Offices will not stay open that late. In Northwest Arkansas, folks only have until 7:00 p.m.

"The latest window hours are 6:00 p.m. at Craft Station, 1590 E Joyce Blvd. and the latest collection time is 7:00 pm at the Northwest Processing & Distribution Center located at 2300 City Lake, Fayetteville," explains U.S. Postal Service Officer In Charge Donald Knotts. 

As for Fort Smith, you can drop items off until 7:00 p.m. at the General Mail Facility on South 74th Street, though its window service also ends at 6:00.

Of course, you can avoid the last-minute rush by getting your taxes done now. And be sure to check your postage and addresses are clear and correct!!

Here are some other tax tips, courtesy of the U.S.P.S.
  • Use First-Class postage. 
  • Use pre-addressed labels where possible.  Write clearly.  Take special care to ensure that handwritten envelopes are legible, and include a return address.
  • Affix sufficient postage.  One ounce is 49 cents; every additional ounce up to 13 ounces costs an additional 21 cents per ounce.
  • Double-check postage.  Weigh any return that feels heavier than one ounce.  Tax agencies do not accept postage due mail; tax returns bearing insufficient postage will be returned - meaning taxpayers may be penalized for filing late tax returns.
  • Avoid the mad rush at the post office.  Mail returns in local collection boxes, but remember to make certain that the posted pick-up time has not passed to ensure returns will have an April 15 postmark.
  • For customers who send original receipts to tax agencies, registered mail is a good choice.
  • Make certain bulky envelopes are securely sealed.
