AUSTIN -- Tax Day has arrived. Monday is the last day to file a tax return for 2012.

Returns postmarked by midnight will be considered on time. However this year, due to a decline in demand, Austin post offices will not offer midnight mail collection as in past years. Officials say the main office on Cross Park Drive will be open until 8 p.m.

According to the IRS, 97 million Americans had already submitted their tax forms by the first of April. About 90 percent were done electronically. The average refund is $2,755. That’s down by approximately $40 from last year.

The IRS says those who owe taxes but are not ready to file will need to pay at least 90 percent of the amount due when filing for an extension.
