From an email I got this morning:

Hurry, the clock is ticking on your taxes! Pay your federal taxes with your Discover Card
Last I looked, the deadline was yesterday. And while it may technically have still been April 15 here on the west coast when they sent the message, I think you’d be hard pressed to find a post office open at 11pm.
Aside from that, I find the idea of putting taxes on a credit card somewhat disturbing, though if you don’t have the money on hand, I suppose it may be the best you can do.
