Albany- Plenty of traffic passed by the mailboxes on Meredyth Drive Friday afternoon, with people dropping in those tax payments.

"The usual April the 15th," said Sue Woods. The people making runs to the post office on Friday are usually people who like to hold on to that money.

"Well, you put off owing what you owe to the last minute," Woods said.

But some taxpayers aren't even ready to drop their envelope in the mail. Louis Cobb Jr. owns the Jackson Hewitt Tax Services in Albany and he's ready for a busy Friday night.

"In previous years, we've been here till midnight," Cobb said.

Jackson Hewitt's four locations will be open until at least nine o'clock.

"Well, we're here tonight as long as you need us."

So if you're running behind, other taxpayers have some advice for you.

"Get it done," said Dan Papp.

After all, it's got to be done by midnight.
