Can you mail multiple tax returns in one envelope?

If you are sending in multiple tax returns to the IRS or state, do not stuff them all together in one envelope without properly separating them.

Does it matter what envelope you use for taxes?

Yes, you can use any color envelope. It's also a good idea to mail your return using certified mail or a mailing service such as UPS or FedEx. This ensures you get a confirmation that the IRS received it.

How many stamps do I need to send tax forms?

For a First-Class flat-sized (8 ½ X 11) envelope, the cost is $1.00 up to the first ounce and 20 cents for each additional ounce. That would be $1.20 for up to two ounces. Customers may purchase postage at the retail counter or at a Self-Service Ship and Mail Center (credit/debit card only) in the Post Office lobby.

What is the safest way to mail tax returns?

USPS Registered or Certified Mail. The most common way to obtain proof of mailing for paper forms sent to the IRS is via United States registered or certified mail.

Do I staple or paperclip my tax return?

If handwritten, use black or blue ink only. Do not staple or attach your check, W-2s or any other documents to your return. Submit proper documentation (schedules, statements and supporting documentation, including W-2s, other states' tax returns, or necessary federal returns and schedules).

Do I attach W-2 to state tax return?

If you accidentally attach your W-2 marked for your state onto your federal return, don't worry – the personal, state and federal designations on each W-2 copy are helpful suggestions only. You can send any of your three W-2 forms to your state or the federal government. They all have the same information.

Can you staple tax returns?

The IRS accepts returns that are stapled or paperclipped together. However, any check or payment voucher, as well as accompanying Form 1040-V, must not be stapled or paperclipped with the rest of the return, since payments are processed separately.

Do you mail state and federal taxes together?

Do not mail the federal and state returns together in the same envelope! They do not go to the same place. When you print out your returns there should be instructions that tell you where to mail them. When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2's or any 1099's.

Should I mail tax returns separately?

The IRS advises exempt organizations and persons who prepare returns for them that an organization's annual return and its unrelated business income tax return (Form 990-TPDF), if required, should be mailed in separate envelopes.

Do I mail state and federal taxes separately?

Yes. If you do not e-file your income tax returns and mail them instead, each income tax return is sent separately.

How many stamps does a W-2 envelope need?

If you are mailing a standard sized letter (see more on what qualifies as 'standard size' below) rectangular envelope that weighs less than 1 oz., you will need 58¢ worth of postage, or 1 "forever" stamp.

Is the IRS processing paper returns now?
