Procrastinated on filing your taxes? Here’s a list of Utah post office collection times on Tax Day


This year, Tax Day falls on Tuesday, April 17, a full two days later than normal. April 15 falls on a Sunday in 2018, which would normally push Tax Day to Monday, April 16.

That date, though, happens to be when Washington, D.C., is observing Emancipation Day. That holiday honors the 1862 passage of the District of Columbia Compensated Emancipation Act, which ended slavery in the nation’s capital by paying slave owners to pledge their loyalty to the Union and free their slaves.

Thus, Tax Day is pushed back yet another day to Tuesday, April 17. The holiday returns to its regular April 15 date for 2019.

Due to website issues Tuesday, the IRS announced it extended to the deadline one day. Taxpayers will have until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18, to both pay and file their returns without penalty.

If you waited until the last minute to file your taxes, don’t worry there is still hope.

Post offices in Utah will have regular customer service hours on Tuesday, but Salt Lake City and Provo offer the latest collection times.
