“I hate doing taxes, and I don’t want to pay people to do them,” said Evanston’s Rick Parris, explaining why he was filing during the final hour of the tax season. Parris was among dozens at Evanston’s Main Post Office, 1101 Davis. Doors closed at 6 p.m., but a kiosk was available until 7. No more pre-midnight runs. “I wouldn’t say it’s hard, just a lot of little steps to go through,” said Parris, who started working on his taxes three days ago. “Let’s just say the instructions are not user-friendly.” Next year? “I’m going to pay somebody to do it. It’s too much pressure.” (Photo by Richard Cahan)
