Local post offices will not extend hours for tax deadline
Income tax procrastinators need to be aware that there will be limited availability for mailing those last-minute tax forms on Income Tax Day, which falls on Tuesday, April 17, this year.
Post Offices in Lee and Collier counties will NOT have extended hours of operation. Those individuals who wish to send their income tax forms late that day must take their pre-stamped envelopes to the Fort Myers Processing & Distribution Center, 14080 Jetport Loop Rd., Fort Myers. The outside blue collection boxes at that location will have a last pickup at midnight.
