Each year the United States Postal Service (USPS) calculates and proposes incremental price adjustments to ensure that prices stay in line with operating costs. The USPS does not receive tax dollars for operating expenses; therefore, they rely on accurately matching postage rates to costs. These proposed prices are then submitted to the Postal Regulatory Commission for approval, and to ensure that the rates will generate revenue that more-or-less matches operating costs.
When these changes go into effect on the 26th of January, direct mail prices in relation to certain shipping categories will change to reflect the new postage rates. With the proposed changes by USPS being both incremental and different for each shipping category, United Mail has put together a helpful PDF guide to ensure that all of that information is easily interpreted and always handy.
