Some Local Post Offices are Open Late on Tax Day

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Some local post offices that are normally open late may see a boost in traffic with Monday being the tax deadline.

A Washington, D.C. holiday pushed the deadline from April 15 to three days later, giving people some extra time to file.

The general mail post office 1100 Kings Road is open until 9 p.m. on weekdays. The one at The Landing is open until 7 p.m.

You can file Form 4868 to get more time to file. It gives you an extra six months, but doesn't delay your obligation to pay on April 18. It works best for people who are expecting a tax refund and just need some extra time.

Spotting an Impostor: Scammers Pose as Friends, Family and Government Agencies

It’s easy to think “It couldn’t happen to me.” But scammers know how to get around our better judgment. They play on our emotions or promise big payoffs to get us to act. And many use the names of government agencies like the FTC, trusted companies, or friends and family to get us to buy into their schemes. We may not be able to spot the impostor until it’s too late.
