"It's today or bust," says Bill Maggiora.
Maggiora waited till the last day to file his taxes, but he says that wasn't the plan.
"I always got it done on time and this year I had technical difficulties and I wound up with the post offices closing," says Maggiora.
He was able to make it in to the post office before Tax Day closing time at midnight and he wasn't the only one. According to NPR, 99 million federal taxpayers filed on Tuesday. On the plus side more than 80 million expected a refund.
"Just filing the taxes, get them done, get them mailed out. I don't owe anything so that's cool," says Mark Baxter.
It wasn't all good news at the post office on Vasser where they were having their own technical difficulties.
"I've been standing here for 40 minutes waiting on the slowest computer in the world," says Darin Vicknair.
That would be the self-service ship and mail center which is the only way to get a package postmarked after hours. Employees say the system is likely overloaded since countless people around the country waited til the last minute on Tax Day.
"The employees are clearly doing all they can, but this is clearly an impossible situation."
