Postage Due


If you’re mailing your taxes on Monday, make sure there’s enough postage on the envelope.

US postage rates set for 1.7% increase from Sunday

The US Postal Service is set to raise its prices on some of its mail services for the first time in nearly two years.

The rate rises do not affect Express Mail or Priority Mail, and will leave a basic one-ounce First Class Mail letter costing 44-cents.

Most of the changes are for commercial mail categories, including for First Class Mail, Standard Mail, periodicals, package services and other services.

. . .

The major changes for retail customers will include a three-cent rise in First Class Mail additional ounces (to 20c per ounce), a one-cent rise for First Class Mail postcards (to 29c) with stamped postcards going up to 32c, and a rise for letters or postcards bound for Canada and Mexico to 80c.

Of course, even with this postage rate increase, the USPS will still run massive multi-billion dollar deficits every year.

/the postal service should be privatized and/or they should raise the postage rates to the level where they actually pay for the service provided, instead of sucking taxpayer money into a government run black hole
