News, New

SELINSGROVE — Tax day is Monday.  While that used to mean longer hours for the post office, Selinsgrove postmaster Michael Wolfberg said that is not the case anymore.   “We used to, I’m thinking 25-30 years ago, be open until 9:00p.m. or midnight,” he said.  “Now with the internet the way it is, and with e-filing, and everything that everybody is doing online, it really does eliminate the amount of lines that we see coming in.”   Wolfberg said people still wait until the last day to file their taxes, but not all of them come to the post office to send them anymore.  He said they will still see longer lines Monday, but not…
