Running late on your taxes? Well, you have a few more hours.
Although Tax Day falls on Tuesday, April 18, the post offices in Boone are closing on a regular schedule today, which is 5 p.m. for the post office on Blowing Rock Road and 4 p.m. for the downtown Boone post office.
While taxes are usually due on April 15, the normal deadline was delayed because April 15 fell on a Saturday this year and then Monday happened to fall on Emancipation Day, which is a holiday in DC. So that pushed the tax deadline out a bit more.
