Post Office 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 46 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
