Stamp Prices Are Going Down Just In Time for Tax Day 2016

April 11, 2016

For the first time in nearly 100 years, the price of a first-class stamp decreased. As of April 10, 2016, the cost to mail a one-ounce letter dropped from 49 cents to 47 cents – just in time for tax day! The decrease is due to an agreement with Congress.

They were expected to reach that amount by April 10th, thus the decrease in prices.
