No extended hours at post offices on tax night

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (USPS) – Millions of Americans wait until the last minute to file their tax returns. This year is no different. Filers have until 12 midnight on Tuesday, April 15 to drop off their completed returns. The Postal Service will not be adding any additional window hours or collection times.

Officer in Charge Paula McDore is urging customers to be aware of this change. "The latest window hours and collection time is 8:00 p.m. at the Little Rock Processing & Distribution Center located at 4700 E. McCain, North Little Rock."

"Customers can be assured all mail dropped in the blue collection boxes at the Processing & Distribution Center location until 8 p.m. will receive an April 15 postmark. Although the deadline is Tuesday April 15, customers are urged to drop off returns as early as possible," says McDore.

The Postal Service offers the following advice to tax filers:

Council leaning toward peddler licenses

The Conway City Council seems to support creating a license system for door-to-door peddlers, but some changes to the proposed ordinance will be considered.
