Postage Refunds and Stamp Exchanges

Today, the Refunds and Exchanges proposed rule was posted on the Federal Register website and soon it will be posted on the Postal Explorer® website under Federal Register Notices.

The rule proposes to revise the Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) to remove obsolete standards about postage refunds and stamp exchanges; to standardize processes for requesting refunds for extra services and PC Postage® labels; and to change the methods for calculating refund amounts, all in light of technological advances that have expanded authorized methods for paying postage and requesting postage refunds.

We look forward to your comments on this proposal by April 15, 2013.
