GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The U.S. Postal Service is preparing for taxpayers filing last minute income tax returns, but are not expecting as many as years past.
"I just think a lot of people do online tax returns more than they used to. It's quicker, it's faster to get their money back if they get money back," said Grand Junction postmaster Michael Fittje.
Last year taxpayers filed more than 234 million income tax returns and almost one quarter of those were mailed.
No post office retail locations in Grand Junction will be staying open late, but the post office at 602 Burkey Street will accept stamped envelops for punctual postmarks.
