Postage rates increase April 17th!
Are you prepared for the postage rate increase that goes into effect this weekend? The rate for single-piece, 1-ounce First-Class letters will remain at 44 cents. However, effective April 17th, postage for each additional ounce will increase from 17 to 20 cents.

Make sure your clients know that taxpayers who wait until the April 18th filing deadline to mail their returns must pay the increased postage!
