No more procrastinating - tax day is here

April 15, 2014 

Open late on tax day

The Boise mail processing and distribution center at 2201 S. Cole Road will collect tax returns until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Another option

The main post offices in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, Caldwell, Eagle and Emmett, plus Boise offices at Cole Village and Five Mile Station, offer self-serve kiosks. Print a mailing label before midnight, and that label will bear an April 15 postmark.

Save a stamp, get curbside service

Tax Commission and IRS employees will accept tax forms in person from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday outside the Tax Commission, 800 Park Blvd., Plaza IV (the Washington Group Plaza). The Tax Commission will accept all state returns curbside, with or without payments. The IRS will not accept federal returns with payments curbside.

Taxpayers can drop off federal returns with payments in person at the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center in the federal building at 550 W. Fort St., Boise. Basic state and federal tax forms, including federal extension forms, will also be available at the same office.
