Tax Day pushed to Tuesday
LIHUE — Twenty-seven post offices across the state, including the Lihue Post Office, will offer late collection of mail in specially marked collection boxes on Tuesday, federal Tax Day, to accommodate last-minute filers of federal tax returns.
Taxpayers across the nation have a few extra days to file their returns this year. They have until Tuesday to file their federal tax returns and pay any taxes due because April 15 fell on a Saturday and Monday is Emancipation Day, a holiday in the District of Columbia.
All post offices in Hawaii will be closing at their regular times on Tax Day.
The 27 post offices will have blue collection boxes or in-wall mail slots labeled with special bright orange signs indicating “Tax Mail Drop — Final Pick-Up Midnight.” Tax forms with correct postage deposited in those specially designated boxes and slots by midnight will receive April 18 postmarks.
