FORT MYERS, Fla. - The old saying goes, “there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes.” Year after year, people have shown up here to get their midnight postmark on April 15th. For some, it's to hold onto their money as long as they can... for others, it's plain and simple procrastination.
Here's some good news - last year's economic recovery package contained $300 billion in tax cuts, so overall, Americans are actually paying fewer federal taxes this year. The Processing and Distribution Center here on Jetport Loop Road was open until midnight for all the last-minute filers. They kept coming up until the last minute.
