Several local post offices will remain open until midnight Monday to collect and postmark last-minute federal and state income tax returns. Because the traditional tax filing deadline of April 15 falls on a Saturday this year, the deadline for filing tax returns has been moved to midnight Monday. More postal information: (213) 586-1463 or (213) 586-1467. The following post offices will be open until midnight Monday: Burbank Main Post Office, 2140 N.
The U.S. Postal Service is introducing fax "terminals" in a trial program at 263 post offices nationwide, including Los Angeles. The technology will be provided by contract by a private Miami-based company, Hotelcopy Inc., that specializes in fax networks. The firm is leasing lobby space in 263 post offices for $52,600 a month, giving the Postal Service a 25% share of any monthly profits above $950 at each location.

With Christmas fast approaching, lines at local post offices are getting longer as residents mail cards and gifts to friends and loved ones. December usually brings a 30% to 40% increase in mail for volume for the U.S. Postal Service, said Al Strawther, the officer in charge of Thousand Oaks' post offices. And the real rush is just getting started. "Things are picking up," Strawther said Thursday. "It's an all-day thing. . . . This weekend, they'll be down to the 12 days."

The Terminal Annex and Hollywood Station post offices, both built in the 1930s, were declared historic landmarks during dedication ceremonies Monday. The two buildings were placed into the National Register of Historic Places because of their unique architectural styles, said David Mazer, spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service.

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.
