CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The inflexible, April 15 cutoff for filing taxes has never been a friend to procrastinators, but that s even truer this year.
Post offices in the Carolinas will not offer extended hours and will close and their regularly scheduled time.
This is not true for all states, but overall, the U.S. Postal Service says electronic filing has eliminated the need for extended hours.
