DMM Revision: Permit Imprint With Extra Services

Effective January 4, 2010, we will revise Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) 604.5.3.7 and 604.5.3.8 to clarify the permit imprint class markings for Standard Mail® and Package Services mail items, and to allow abbreviated phrasing when using permit imprint postage with extra services. With current standards, the second line of a permit imprint must show, "U.S. Postage and Fees Paid" when both postage and fees are paid via permit imprint. This revision provides the option for the second line of a permit imprint to show either "U.S. Postage and Fees Paid" or "U.S. Postage Paid." 5.3.7 Standard Mail and Package Services Format [Revise the text of the first sentence of 5.3.7 to read as follows:] A Standard Mail or Package Services permit imprint indicia must contain the same information required in 5.3.6, except that the Standard Mail or the applicable Package Services (Parcel Post, Bound Printed Matter, Media Mail, or Library Mail) marking must be used instead of "First-Class Mail." *** 5.3.8 Indicating Extra Services

[Revise the text of 5.3.8 to read as follows:] Mailpieces for which postage and extra services fees are paid for by permit imprint must show the applicable class of mail ("First-Class Mail," for example); "U.S. Postage Paid" (or "U.S. Postage and Fees Paid," at the mailer's option); city and state; and permit number. The city, state, and permit number may be omitted in a company permit imprint indicia, subject to 5.3.9.

DMM Revision: Products Mailable at Nonprofit Standard Mail Prices

Under statutory restrictions in the Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) 703.1.6.11, products that are mailed at the Nonprofit Standard Mail® prices must meet at least one of three exceptions. A low-cost item is one of the exceptions referenced in the Internal Revenue Code. The value of a lowcost item -- the actual cost to the authorized nonprofit organization -- is determined each year by the Internal Revenue Service, adjusted for the cost of living. For 2010, the value of a low-cost item is $9.60 or less.

IMM Revision: International Reply Coupons -- Update

Effective January 4, 2010, the Postal ServiceTM is revising Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, International Mail Manual (IMM®) section 381.4 to update the authorized version of international reply coupons. The article "International Reply Coupons" in Postal Bulletin 22274 (12-17-09, pages 48­49) announced the expiration of international reply coupon (IRC) Item Number 330700, which bears the expiration date of December 31, 2009, and announced new Item Number 330800, which bears the expiration date of December 31, 2013. Consistent with the information in that article, we are revising IMM 381.4d to reflect the new IRC. In addition, we are revising 381.4f to stipulate that postmasters must process coupons as prescribed in section 11-6.6 of Handbook F-101, Field Accounting Procedures (previously, the reference was to section 426.9 of Handbook F-1, Post Office Accounting Procedures). We will incorporate these revisions into the next printed version of the IMM and into the monthly update of the online IMM, which is available via Postal Explorer® at http://pe.usps.com.

Federal Income Tax Withholding

Effective as soon as possible in 2010, payroll checks will reflect a change in the withholding of federal taxes. The biweekly personal exemption value for each federal tax allowance will remain $140.38. There has been a change in the threshold amounts for each percentage and two new percentages (27% and 30%) have been added to the tables. All information in this article is based on a biweekly payroll period (PP) and the withholding tables in Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Publication 15, (Circular E), Employer's Tax Guide.

* Wages are determined after subtracting withholding allowances, CPP, FEDVIP, FEHB, FSA, and TSP contributions from your gross earnings.

Commuter Program pre-tax (CPP), Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB), Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), and Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) contributions made by employees are treated as pre-tax monies for these computations. When calculating your taxes, remember to subtract your withholding allowances and all of these contribution amounts from your gross earnings. Note: There are two technical exceptions to this pre-tax rule. TSP contributions are tax-deferred; however, they are deducted during these computations. Additionally, in rare instances, if an employee has signed a pre-tax waiver for FEHB benefits, they are considered to be taxable income and not used in these calculations. To determine the amount of withholding, follow steps 1 through 9: 1. Determine normal biweekly gross wages from earnings statement. 2. Determine normal biweekly TSP contributions from earnings statement. 3. Determine normal biweekly FSA contributions from earnings statement. If applicable, add the amounts from both the FSA Dependent Child (FSADC) Sub-

Account and the FSA Health Care (FSAHC) SubAccount. 4. Determine normal biweekly FEHB pre-tax employee contribution from earnings statement (abbreviated as HP). 5. Determine normal CPP employee contribution from earnings statement. Note: This program is administered on a monthly basis. The CPP contribution is deducted in every second PP. 6. Determine normal Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) employee contribution from earnings statement. 7. Multiply the number of exemptions claimed by the new biweekly exemption value of $140.38 (withholding allowance). The federal tax line on the earnings statement shows the number of exemptions claimed (e.g., S1 = single with one exemption, M3 = married with three exemptions). 8. Subtract the amounts in step 2 (TSP), step 3 (FSA), step 4 (FEHB), step 5 (CPP), step 6 (FEDVIP), and step 7 (exemptions) from step 1 (biweekly gross wages). The balance is the amount subject to withholding.

Organization Information

9. Determine which range this amount falls into on the Federal Income Tax Withholding Table, and follow the instructions listed in the table. The following is an example of how to compute Federal Income Taxes for a Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) employee who claims married with three exemptions, and makes pre-tax contributions to the TSP, FSA, FEHB, CPP, and FEDVIP. Example: A FERS employee receives $3,826.35 as biweekly gross wages. The employee makes the following contributions: 11 percent of gross ($420.90) per pay period (PP) to the TSP; $65 per PP to the FSADC Sub-Account; $95 per PP to the FSAHC Sub-Account; $131.48 per PP for FEHB ($131.48 is the actual cost for a Postal Service employee paying for High Option Self and Family (Category One) with the GEHA Benefit Plan); $105 for this PP to the CPP; and $43 for the GEHA PPO High Option Dental Biweekly Premium (Rating Region 2). The employee claims "Married" with three exemptions (M3 on the federal tax line of the earnings statement). Using the information provided in the Federal Income Tax Withholding Table in this article, federal taxes are computed as follows:

1. Total biweekly gross wages 2. TSP contributions 3. FSADC contribution FSAHC contribution Total FSA contribution $3,826.35 420.90 65.00 95.00 160.00 4. 5. 6. 7.

FEHB contribution CPP contribution FEDVIP contribution Exemptions (3 x $140.38)

131.48 105.00 43.00 421.14

Computation continues as follows:

Biweekly gross wages Minus TSP contributions Minus FSA contributions Minus FEHB contributions Minus CPP contributions Minus FEDVIP contributions Minus exemptions Amount of wages subject to withholding $3,826.35 -420.90 -160.00 -131.48 -105.00 -43.00 -421.14 $2,544.83

To complete the computation, refer to the Married/ Biweekly segment of the Federal Income Tax Withholding Table. The amount of wages subject to withholding ($2,544.83) falls within the "over $942 but not over $2,913" range. Using the information provided within that range, the final computation is as follows:

Amount subject to withholding Subtract $942 from $2,544.83 Multiply $1,602.83 by .15 (15%) Add from the table Add $240.43 and $41.30 Total federal income tax* that should be withheld from this employee's biweekly check

* Rounding may vary this total by a few cents.

Important: IRCs with an expiration date before December 31, 2009, must not be returned to the SDO/ SSC for any reason. IRCs with an expiration date before December 31, 2009, that were not returned as advised in past Postal Bulletin articles must be removed from your inventory, destroyed locally (no value), and posted as a shortage (AIC 767) to your unit reserve stock inventory. (POS units must enter a count in the "Count Inventory and Cash" workflow; select "yes" to the question "Is this a final count".) Unit reserve custodians may submit a claim for loss to the district Finance manager following procedures in Handbook F-101, Field Accounting Procedures, subchapter 8-7, Claim for Loss. Upon receipt of an approved claim for loss, clear the stamp credit shortage (AIC 367) and offset to AIC 633, Claim for Loss; use Reason Code 10, Uncollectible Employee Items. Redemption rates for foreign-issued exchanged IRCs are based on the round date stamp (on the right-hand side of the coupon) and the list below:

Date 1/8/2006­5/13/2007 5/14/2007­5/11/2008 5/12/2008­5/10/2009 5/11/2009­12/31/2009 Redemption Rates 0.84 0.90 0.94 0.98

Handbook F-101, Field Accounting Procedures, part 11-6.6 contains specific instructions for submitting redeemed foreign-issued and U.S.-issued exchanged IRCs to their servicing SDO or SSC.

Thrift Savings Plan: Spouse Beneficiary Accounts

The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) has implemented interim procedures for spouse beneficiary accounts established under the Thrift Savings Plan Enhancement Act of 2009. The transition will not be fully complete until 2010; however, during the interim period, a deceased participant's spouse has several options as the beneficiary of the TSP account. Once Form TSP-17, Information Relating to Deceased Participant, is received and processed, the TSP will send an interim notice to spouse beneficiaries to inform them that they may leave the designated amount they are entitled to in the TSP. It will remain invested in the G Fund until a TSP account has been established in the spouse's name. Rather than the account being paid 60 days after the notice is sent, the spouse will have the option of requesting immediate payment by filling out an enclosed form. The form will have to be notarized. The payment can also be transferred to an IRA or other eligible employer plan by filling out a TSP-13-S-D, Spouse's Election of Payment Method for Death Benefit, which will also be enclosed with the notice. If the spouse is a TSP participant, he or she may request that the TSP transfer the spousal account balance to his or her TSP account. Detailed information regarding the transfer option and taxation rules can be found in the tax notice, "Important Tax Information About TSP Death Benefit Payments" on the TSP website at http://www.tsp.gov/forms/ octax92-38.pdf.

Verifying U.S. Postal Service Money Orders

Follow these steps to cash a Postal ServiceTM money order: 1. Check that the amount does not exceed the legal limit: $1,000 for domestic, and $700 for international postal money orders. 2. Check that the proper security features are present: When held to the light, a watermark of Benjamin Franklin is repeated from top to bottom on the left side. When held to the light, a dark line (security thread) runs from top to bottom with the word "USPS" repeated. There should be no discoloration around the dollar amounts, which might indicate the amounts were changes. These appear in Postal Service Notice 299, U.S. Postal Money Order Reference Card, or online at http://www.usps.com/missingmoneyorders/ security.htm. 3. If the money order seems suspicious, call the U.S. Postal Service Money Order Verification System at 866-459-7822. Please provide this information to local banks and retailers, as they also receive Postal Service money orders for cashing.

The APO/FPO/DPO table below outlines these conditions by APO/FPO/DPO ZIPTM Codes through the use of footnoted mailing restrictions codes (see the Restrictions page following the table). Acceptance clerks should use the table with the integrated retail terminal (IRT) or POS ONE terminal to determine which APO/FPO/DPO ZIP Codes are active and which conditions of mailing apply. Acceptance clerks may contact the Military Postal Service Agency with any questions regarding APO/FPO/DPO ZIP Codes, toll free, at 800-810-6098, Monday­Friday, 0730­1600 ET. For Express Mail Military Service (EMMS) availability, all acceptance clerks must refer to the local hardcopy EMMS directory.

We have eliminated "Not Active" entries from the table below to save space and paper.

Post Offices, classified stations, branches, and contract postal units may display this poster at their option. If the poster is displayed, it should be placed on the community bulletin board located in the Post OfficeTM box lobby and not in the main retail (full service) lobby.

Easy Holiday Returns

The Postal ServiceTM has the right portfolio of returns solutions for businesses large and small. Now that the holidays are over, what are you going to do with those gifts that you need to return? You ship them back -- and you won't be alone. While the overall percentage of returns compared to outbound shipment is relatively small at 5.2 percent, the volume of returns is on the rise (Source: Colography Group). Certain online merchants and catalogers reported returns greater than 30 percent. That number may be more accurate during this holiday season as online retail was predicted to grow over 8 percent according to researcher firm Forrester. In addition, various shipping offers motivated consumers to purchase more products online during the 2009 holiday shopping season than in years past, contributing to the growth of the postholiday returns market. The challenge for retailers and online merchants is offering customers a quick, easy, and convenient way to return unwanted purchases. Having a user-friendly method for handling returns can make or break how a customer feels about your business, and can be a deciding factor in whether they do business with you again in the future Whether you are looking for a returns solution for your fulfillment operation or a way to manage product recalls, the Postal Service offers several convenient and easy-touse return options. Not only does the Postal Service offer customized budget-friendly return options with unrivaled access to the largest shipping network in the United States, but it also connects every home and business nationwide, 6 days a week. High-volume shippers interested in providing customers with a convenient postage-paid option for returning merchandise can offer the Postal Service's Parcel Return Service without breaking the bank. And getting return labels to customers is easy, too: They can be included in the outbound shipment, e-mailed to the customer, or downloaded from your company's website. Parcel Return Service combines the operational expertise of a third-party logistics provider with the Postal Service's unmatched reach into homes and businesses. But if you run a small or mid-sized business and are just starting to offer return service, the Postal Service's Merchandise Return Service is the solution for you. Merchandise Return Service offers the same value and convenience as Parcel Return Service, but gives small and mid-sized businesses multiple service options based on transit time and cost, allowing businesses to customize their returns solutions to meet their own budget as well as their customers' needs. Add the convenience of over 32,000 retail drop-off locations and the option of using free Package Pickup at www.usps.com/ pickup, and you'll see Merchandise Return Service is a great solution for growing businesses. "Our daily presence at every household and business allows customers and merchants to leverage the most convenient entry options in the market for return packages," says Jim Cochrane, Vice President, Ground Shipping. So whether you are a large-volume shipper interested in offering customers a prepaid and hassle-free returns experience or a small business just starting to offer returns options, the Postal Service has the returns solution to meet your business's needs. With unrivaled reach to every home and business in America, the Postal Service can help your business manage returns, and at the same time improve overall customer satisfaction.

The Butterfly Stamp

on their envelopes, making it easy for customers to understand the new butterfly stamp or equivalent postage is all that is needed to mail the card. The first stamp design in the new series features one of the most recognizable butterflies in North America, the monarch. It will be dedicated at the National Stationery Show held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York on May 17, 2010. The stamp will be published as a pane of 20.

About the Butterfly Stamp

In May 2010, USPS® will offer a new Butterfly stamp, which covers the 1-ounce First-Class Mail® letter postage and the nonmachinable surcharge. The butterfly symbol was chosen as a universal symbol that will be used for all future stamps for nonmachinable letters. When postal prices increase, USPS will issue a new butterfly design for this stamp. The Butterfly stamp icon carries text that reads: "Butterfly Stamp or Equivalent Postage Required." This implies that either the Butterfly stamp or postage totaling its value should be used. The GCA recommends that all square envelopes and those that fall within the nonmachinable letter category carry the Butterfly stamp icon in the upper right-hand corner, thus making it easier for all concerned to determine postage for greeting cards and invitations that fall within the "nonmachinable" specifications.

The U.S. Postal Service®, in conjunction with the Greeting Card Association (GCA), announced on December 30, 2009, the first in a new series of postage stamps that will make it simple for greeting card customers to know how much postage to put on their envelopes. The new 64-cent Butterfly stamp is designed to be used on cards that have an irregular shape requiring additional postage. Participating manufacturers will print a silhouette image of a butterfly

Organization Information

Dimensions of the Butterfly stamp icon are 1 1/8" x 1 1/ 8". This size allows it to fit completely beneath the actual stamp. The Butterfly stamp icon should be placed 3/16" from the top and right edges of 1-ounce envelopes that: Are square. Are rigid and do not bend easily. Contain items that cause the mailpiece to be uneven. Have an address that is parallel to the shorter dimension of the letter (vertical setup).

Background for Stamp

The United States Postal Service requires extra postage, called a "nonmachinable surcharge", on First-Class Mail letters when an envelope: Is square or doesn't meet aspect ratio (length divided by height not within 1.3 to 2.5). Is rigid and does not bend easily. Contains items that cause the mailpiece to be uneven. Has an address that is parallel to the shorter dimension of the letter (vertical setup). The nonmachinable surcharge is currently 20 cents.

Objectives of the Iconic Stamp Program

To simplify determination of postage for such "nonmachinable" envelopes for both consumers and postal staff, USPS and the GCA have worked in collaboration to develop an iconic stamp program. The iconic stamp program features: 1. A new postage stamp priced to include both the 1ounce First-Class Mail letter postage and the nonmachinable surcharge combined with an easily recognizable iconic graphic. 2. A matching iconic graphic that will be printed on envelopes requiring additional postage. USPS will produce the iconic postage stamp, and the GCA will encourage greeting card companies that produce "nonmachinable" cards to print the matching iconic graphic in the upper right-hand corner on their envelopes. The combination of the stamp and corresponding icon will make it easier for consumers and postal employees to quickly identify that additional postage is required. By adding this icon to nonmachinable envelopes, we believe that we can increase the percentage of cards that are mailed with proper postage.

Icon Artwork

The Butterfly stamp icon artwork is available in EPS and PDF file formats and can be downloaded from the GCA website at www.greetingcard.org.

Size and Usage Guidelines

Dimensions of the Butterfly stamp are 1 1/4" x 1 1/4". At the Butterfly stamp's first issue, the value is 64 cents.
