Post Office to Stay Open Late on Tax Deadline Day

Read n' Post received permission late Monday afternoon from the U.S. Postal Service for the post office at their new Read 'n Post store in the Montecito Country Mart to remain open until 8:30 p.m. on Monday, April 15 -- the deadline day for mailing federal and state tax returns.

Our normal closing time of 6 p.m. is later than all other area post offices, and the 8:30 p.m. tax day closing will also be later than any other post office in Montecito or Santa Barbara.

Read ‘n Post store hopes this will be a service to people in this area who need a place to mail their income tax returns at the last minute.

The Read ‘n Post address is 1026-B Coast Village Road in the Montecito Country Mart, a few steps from the entrance to the Montecito Vons. Access is from either the Hot Springs Road parking lot or the courtyard walkway.

After their normal closing time of 6 p.m. on April 15, the post office at Read ‘n Post will be able to accept only tax payments and other envelopes — not large parcels. Stamps will also be for sale until 8:30.

All envelopes mailed at Read ‘n Post by 8:30 p.m. on Monday will receive a postmark of April 15.

In addition to the post office, the Read ‘n Post store will also stay open until 8:30 p.m. on April 15.
