The Corporate Hills, Downtown, and General Mail Facility offices have Automated Postal Centers (APC) that can be used after normal retail hours on April 15. Customers using an APC must use a credit or debit card for payment. A mailing label generated from the APC with a date is NOT an official postmark; you need to deposit the items on 4/15/09 before 8:00 PM in order to receive an official postmark applied.
Tax Mail tips:

  • Apply proper postage and stamps, especially with extra forms/schedules. It costs 42 cents for the first ounce; 17 cents for each additional ounce. One ounce is about four pages.

  • If you use a non-IRS labeled envelope, make sure you print the proper IRS address.

  • Customers who wish certification their tax mail form is received by IRS should mail it using Certified Mail Service/Return Receipt - available at your local post office or online at If purchased online, mail will have to be deposited by the times above to receive the proper postmark on April 15.

  • Customers with tax questions can contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040; or
