I visited the Chabot Drive Post Office today, and was very pleased at the service. They had an extra person to help with packages at the Automatic Mailing Machine, and when she wasn't doing that she helped the people who were sending certified mail to the IRS & Franchise Tax board, by taping the proper documents to our envelopes and assisting us with the proper forms & how to expedite filling them out (if you didn't know what to do). It was very reassuring (to us dummies) and it helped speed up the line.

Unfortunatly, I actually relied on correct information from this article. Unlike many people, I refuse to give the goverment an INTEREST FREE LOAN! and therefore was not going to receive a refund. And I do not give them the money until I have to, which is the 15th. Based on the information on this article, I had planned on mailing it from Black Ave after work, which was going to be late but well within the midnight hours stated in the article. Needless to say I was greeted by very angry and frustated people leaving the Post Office and making plans to drive long distances to find an office that was open, I soon joined them. The Post Office was CLOSED!!! Shame on you and the Post Office for DECEIVING YOR READERS
