PHOTOS: Post offices open later Wednesday for tax deadline

— The Naples Main Post Office at 1200 Goodlette Road N. will be open until 8 p.m. Wednesday to assist tax filers mailing income tax papers.

For anyone paying with a debit or credit card, the Automated Postal Center (APC) will be available to purchase postage for tax returns. Certified mail service and return receipt if a signature upon delivery is desired can be added.

All mail deposited in the collection boxes at the following locations prior to midnight will be canceled with the required April 15 date; 1200 Goodlette Road North and the Coco River Branch located at 1130 Creekside Way, which is off Immokalee Road in North Naples.

The Post Office also offered a few reminders in mailing your tax returns: The IRS will not accept mail that does not have sufficient postage applied. If you mail your tax return in a large envelope additional posted is required, even if the envelope only weighs an ounce. The minimum charge is 83 cents but increases with additional weight.

In addition, any letter size envelope weighing over 1 ounce will require additional postage, 17 cents, per ounce.
