This year’s tax April 17 deadline grants a two-day reprieve from the traditional filing deadline of April 15, which fell on Sunday this year.

The deadline was delayed one additional day because Monday is the 150th anniversary of D.C.’s emancipation, which is treated like a federal holiday, according to the Internal Revenue Service. Not all post offices will be staying open late on April 17 to accommodate procrastinators counting on making a mad dash to the post office at midnight.

According to USPS, the majority of Americans now file their taxes electronically, making the extended hours an unnecessary expense for the agency, which is grappling with a budget shortfall.
