For 2017, Tax Day falls on Tuesday, April 18. Post Offices MAY be open late on Tax Day, but don’t count on it. This custom is much less prevalent today than in past years, due to the large number of taxpayers who file online. To save wasted time and gas, a quick phone call to confirm your local USPS Post Office holiday hours of operation is always a good idea. Happy holiday mailing!
