Clock ticking for last-minute tax filers

Western Nevada County residents who insist on doing it the old fashioned way have until 5:30 p.m. Friday to mail their 2004 federal and state income tax returns, if they want to stay close to home.

The Grass Valley and Nevada City post offices will be accepting tax returns until 5:30 p.m. After that, last-minute filers will have to get their returns to the main Chico post office by 8 p.m. or the West Sacramento outlet by midnight to avoid late filling fees.

The U.S. Postal Service offers the following advice to late-minute filers of federal and state income tax returns:

– Mail as early as you can. If you have to mail Friday, mail as early in the day as possible.

– Don’t expect the post office to have tax forms you need.

– Make sure envelopes have sufficient postage.

– Address envelopes clearly and correctly, and always use a return address.

– If you deposit your returns in a collection box, make sure it’s before the last scheduled pick-up of the day.

– Last-minute filers who can’t get their returns to the Grass Valley or Nevada City post offices by 5:30 p.m. Friday have the following options:

– The Chico main post office, 550 Vallombrosa Ave., will accept returns until 8 p.m.

– The post office at 3775 Industrial Blvd., West Sacramento, will accept returns until midnight.
