It was a treat for some residents to have tax day delayed this year, and even the U.S. Postal Service helped out folks by extending the hours of some of their locations.

USPS has also expanded access options to provide mailing alternatives for customers. 

By selecting the “Locate a Post Office” option on the USPS website, customers can use self-serve units to mail and ship transactions. Users of this service should note these units do not proved a proof-of-mailing receipt.

Customers who print online postage on April 17 and drop their mail in a collection box are strongly advised to check the last pickup time posted on the blue collection boxes before dropping off their mail.

The following post offices have expanded hours for Tax Day:

National Capital Post Office
2 Massachusetts Ave. NE
9 a.m.–7 p.m.
Friendship Station Post Office
4005 Wisconsin Ave. NW
9 a.m.–7 p.m.
Hampton Park Post Office
9201 Edgeworth Drive, Capital Heights, Md.
9 a.m.–7 p.m.

Suburban Post Office
16501 Shady Grove Road, Gaithersburg, Md.
7:30 a.m.–7 p.m.

And Tax Day fun... um, "fun" doesn’t have to stop at the post office! Some businesses are offering discounts and freebies in honor of tax day.

On Bruegger’s Facebook page, you’ll find a discount for a dozen bagels. Arby’s, Panda Express, and Seattle’s Best Coffee will also give you a deal if you like their Facebook pages.
