Revised Postage and Fee Refund Criteria

On January 3, the Revised Postage and Fee Refund Criteria proposed rule was posted on the Federal Register website and on the Postal Explorer® website under Federal Register Notices.

The rule proposes to revise the Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) to update the hourly charges and related postage threshold used in assessing certain types of postage refunds. The rule also proposes to provide customers with refund time periods for extra services fees that align with the revised claims filing periods being made effective on January 26, 2014.

We look forward to your comments on this proposal by February 3, 2014.
