Last chance post office 2011

Karner Rd post office

Procrastination destination.

Update for 2012: This is still the post office of last resort, but the closing time has been moved up to 8:30 pm.

Hello, procrastinating tax filers desperately searching Google for the last-chance post office in the Capital Region. Here's your answer: the post office at 30 Old Karner Road in Colonie is the post office of last resort for procrastinating tax filers. The branch, which is connected to the mail processing facility there, will be open until 10 pm tonight.

Yep, 10 pm. In previous years, it was open until midnight. Perhaps it's changed because about 70 percent of tax returns are now filed electronically (more than 100 million returns this year).

Bonus spot: the Colonie Center post office is open until 8 pm today -- its usual time.
