It's tax deadline day

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - For those waiting until today to file, there are some late night post office drop off locations in the Phoenix-metro.

Find them at the Phoenix Municipal Stadium parking lot, 56th and Van Buren streets in Phoenix and Peoria Sports Complex, near Bell Road and Loop 101. Both locations will be open until midnight.

If you need more time to file a return make sure to file an extension.

You must submit IRS Form 4868 by today, either by mail or online at www.irs.gov. An extension gives you until Oct. 17 to file your 2010 taxes.

However, if you owe money you must pay that today. Balances not paid by today face interest and penalties. If you want to avoid the penalty pay at least 90 percent of what you owe and the rest by October 17.

Use Arizona Form 204 for a six-month state extension.
