BOZEMAN - It used to be that on April 15 you could run to the post office up until midnight to mail out your taxes, but you may not want to wait until the last minute this year.
Post offices would typically stay open late for people who were bumping up against the Tax Day deadline, but that's not the case this year for local offices. This year, local post offices are operating on normal hours today despite the date - April 15.
Post offices across the country are not staying open as late as they used to on Tax Day because more people are filing online, according to Postmaster Joe Bachofer in Bozeman.
The only location in Bozeman where you can mail your taxes up until midnight and still have them postmarked April 15 is at the auto-post center inside the lobby of the Baxter Lane location.
Here's a look at local post office hours:
Bozeman Downtown (Babcock Street)
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Bozeman (inside Rosauers)
6 a.m. to 8 p.m. (last pickup at 4:45 p.m.)
Belgrade (North Weaver)
8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Belgrade (inside Lee and Dad's IGA)
7 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
