Tax Deadline Causes Rush At Lubbock Post Offices

The IRS tax deadline has forced procrastinators to race against time, so two Lubbock Post Offices stayed open late to help everyone meet the midnight deadline.

Anyone who failed to meet Friday night's deadline, and did not file an extension, is subject to penalties by the IRS.

"As for that extension, you file an extension for time to file not for the payment. If you don't pay by midnight, you face penalties," said Robert Brown a tax specialist.

Brown worked with the Coalition of Community Assistance Volunteers to help low income families file their taxes at the Monterey Station.
