Tax Mailing tips:
- Apply the proper postage or stamps, especially if enclosing extra forms and schedules. Using a regular size Number 2 envelope, First Class postage costs 49 cents for the first ounce.
- For heavier envelopes, add extra stamps or postage amounting to 20 cents for each additional ounce.
- If you are not sure about the correct postage, it is best to add additional stamps, or take your forms to the Post Office to ensure that correct postage is applied.
- Make sure you print the proper IRS address on the front of the envelope.
- Print your return address in the upper-left-hand corner of your tax mail envelope.
- Customers who wish certification that their tax mail form was sent, should send it Certified Mail
- Customers with IRS tax questions can contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040; or go to www.irs.gov.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
