Time running out to file taxes for many Las Vegans

Time running out to file taxes for many Las Vegans

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Apr 15, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It's the day that procrastinators love to hate: April 15.

The IRS says about 100 million taxpayers have already submitted their returns.

If you are not one of them and you know you won't be ready before midnight, you can always file for an extension.

But it you plan to do it the old-fashioned way and mail your taxes at the post office, most branches in Las Vegas will close at 10 p.m.

The main post office on Sunset Road is the only one that will be open until midnight.

You don't have to go to the post office though. The Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay has set up a "post office on wheels." Taxpayers will be able to mail their taxes at the Shark Reef from noon to 8 p.m. today.

And anyone who mails their tax returns at the Shark Reef will receive a voucher for one free admission.

In addition, Zappos is also making the day a little less bitter for tax payers.

They have partnered with two local coffee shops, Grouchy Johns and The Beat, and will be serving free coffee and pastries this morning.

They say they just want to help relieve the stress that many people feel on tax day each year.
