Post offices stay open late for tax procrastinators

Three local U.S. Postal Service facilities will have curbside service and remain open until midnight tonight to assist those filing their federal and state tax forms on Tax Day.

In San Francisco, the Main Branch (located at 1300 Evans St.) will have window hours from 7 a.m. until midnight and curbside hours from 4 p.m. until midnight, and the Airport Branch (660 W. Field Road) will have window hours from 8 a.m. to midnight and curbside assistance from 4 p.m. to midnight.

On the Peninsula, the Redwood City Main Post Office (1100 Broadway) will have service at the window from 7:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. with curbside hours from 7 p.m. until midnight.

“More and more people are filing online, but [April 15] is still one of our busiest days,” San Francisco Postal Service spokesman James T. Wigdel said. “Last year we had people running up until the very end saying ‘wait, don’t close that window.’”

Wigdel said lines typically move at a steady pace, but the Postal Service suggested patrons make sure they have applied the correct amount of stamps and address the postage to the proper IRS address. It costs 41 cents for the first ounce and 17 cents for each additional ounce.
