If you’re planning on mailing a check to settle your tax bill this year, be sure not to overpay in postage.
For the first time in nearly a century, the cost of postage is going down, FORBES reports.

When postage recently went up a few cents in order to reverse a slide in revenues, it was supposed to be a temporary increase.
