Because their tax return has to be postmarked by midnight on that day 
and many people procrastinate about getting it done. Some because 
they owe additional taxes and wait until the last second to file and 
others just because it can be a pain in the behind to get everything 
together to fill out the forms. Like most unpleasant tasks, many 
people put them off until they MUST do them.

The thing is, there has been an electronic filing option for a number 
of years now and I really don't understand why more people don't use 
it. I love being able to do my tax filing on my computer, the program 
does all the calculations for me, error checks it, even assesses my 
risk for an audit and then I can send everything in with no effort at all.

So the continuing phenomenon of masses of humanity at the post office 
baffles me.
