Tax Deadline: Today is the deadline for taxpayers to file their 2013 tax returns with the IRS. For those mailing their returns, the last collection at the Liberty Post Office is at 5:30 p.m. today, in the outside box. In Dayton, the pickup is earlier at 4:15 p.m. at the outside box. Please note, most post offices no longer stay open late on tax day because so many taxpayers now file online. Local CPA Byron Swaim said those racing to file a return, would be better off to file for an automatic extension, no reason required. However, both Mr. Swaim and the IRS remind taxpayers this is an extension to file, not an extension to pay.
