Procrastinators are in luck. The Internal Revenue Service extended the tax filing deadline until Monday, and several San Fernando Valley post offices will be open late that day to accept last-minute returns. Because April 15--the traditional filing date--falls on a Saturday, the government is giving taxpayers two extra days to file their returns.

Twelve post offices and one contract postal service window will remain open until midnight Thursday for last-minute mailing of tax returns. "It's a big night for us," Postal Service spokesman George Marsh said. "It's kind of like Christmas rush all rolled into one night." Last year, 50% more mail passed through the Santa Ana post office on April 15 than on an average day, he said.

Many post offices will be closed for at least the next two Saturdays and new construction projects will be cut by half as part of a package of budget-cutting measures, the U.S. Postal Service announced Wednesday. Saturday mail delivery will continue, but as many as half of the nation's post offices will be closed this Saturday and Jan. 2, Postmaster General Preston R. Tisch said. In addition, service could be further reduced with closings of as much as one half-day each week, he said.
