Treasury keeping extended hours for today’s tax filing deadline
Thousands of last-minute taxpayers are expected to file their returns in Puerto Rico today, and the Treasury Department is responding by offering extended hours at 21 collections centers, and its headquarters in Puerta de Tierra, agency Secretary Melba Acosta said Monday.
The agency’s central office in San Juan and the Capital Center location in Hato Rey will open from 6:30 a.m. to midnight tonight.
Citizens who wish to drop off their returns in person at the Puerta de Tierra facility will be able to drive through stations set up at the Capitolio Plaza Condominium, Paseo Covadonga on the north side, the agency’s plaza and on Ponce de León, near the Olympic House.
Another office that will be operating on an extended schedule today is the Taxpayers Service Center in San Juan, with extended hours through 6 p.m. and the Technical Consults call center at (787) 722-0216 (option 8), also through 6 p.m.
Meanwhile, offices in Arecibo, Bayamón, Guayama, Ponce, Carolina, Caguas, Mayagüez, Fajardo, Humacao and several others times will also open for longer today to give last-minute filers a chance to get their paperwork in on time. (See graphic for detailed schedule.)
Treasury’s internal post office at Puerta de Tierra will be open from 6 a.m. to midnight today. The agency also reminded taxpayers that they can still fill and file their returns online anytime throughout the day via www.planillas2012.com.
