It's a race against the clock for those who have not filed their taxes.

Tax filers have until midnight on Tuesday to file.

Some late filers say they are procrastinators while others say they just needed time to get their taxes together.

"Last minute filers, most of them, are the ones that owe taxes," said Sharon Lewis, manager at Less Tax in Hazard.

She says late filers need to keep a few things in mind.

"I advise everyone to make sure they have everything ready to file, to make sure they have all their information correct. Rushing on returns could cause you to miss something," said Lewis.

At the post office in Hazard, officials said Monday was their busiest tax filing day.

"It's tax time and a lot of people want to get their envelopes post marked, especially, and get them weighed," said postal worker Mark Owens.

Even if only by a few hours, late filers will make sure their taxes are not late.
