Post Office hours are extended today
This is the last day in filing your IRS and because of that, post office hours are extended. One of those is Bend. The main post office in Bend is extending its hours today to accommodate tax return procrastinators. Its mail drop-off boxes outside the post office on 4th Street and in the lobby will be open until midnight tonight. Bend Postmaster Nathan Leigh says you need to be sure you have enough postage or the IRS and Oregon Department of Revenue will not accept your tax returns, even if they get them in time. There is an automated postal center in the lobby of the main Bend Post Office that will weigh your return and tell you how much postage you need. There's also a stamp machine available so you can purchase the postage you need. Your tax returns must be postmarked by midnight tonight.
