Today is the deadline to file your federal tax returns. Last-minute filers have until midnight to get their returns submitted online, or post marked with today’s date. According to the IRS, majority of Americans file their taxes electronically. If you prefer to file the “old fashioned way”, the city is offering extended post office hours.
