The U.S. Postal Service offers the following tips to avoid filing delays and errors: make sure to have the ?proper postage, especially if mailing extra forms or schedules; if using a ?non-Internal Revenue Service labeled envelope, make sure to have the ?proper IRS address; make sure a return address is listed in the upper left-hand corner; do not use an office ?postage meter as the IRS does not accept private postmarks as proof of timely filing; and mail the forms as early as possible.
