NEW YORK, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- New York post offices are ramping up for Tax Day, April 15, by expanding services and expanding hours, announced Vinnie Malloy, District Manager/Postmaster of New York. The James A. Farley Post Office, located at Eighth Avenue and 33rd Street is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. "We'll be supplementing our regular window services with six mobile post offices parked in front of the building on Eighth Avenue to help with the expected 20,000 customers that day," said Malloy. The Bronx General Post Office, located at East 149th Street and the Grand Concourse, will also remain open until midnight that day, in tune with mobile units adding to their services. Additionally, customers will benefit by the many Manhattan post offices that regularly stay open later on Thursday evenings, some until 9:00 p.m. Those post offices are listed below. "We are encouraging customers to avoid the rush and mail their tax returns as early in the day as possible," said Malloy. "Many people wait until the last day, but that doesn't have to mean waiting until the last minute." The postmaster is recommending that last minute filers deposit their tax returns on the way to work or through their workplace's outgoing mail. "If they use a mailbox, they just need to make sure they deposit their return before the last collection," she added. The IRS will not be setting up in the James A. Farley Building this year to assist filers with their returns. Those customers needing assistance from the IRS will have to contact them directly.
