Why should I use Postalocity.com to mail tax documents?
It is the EASY BUTTON FOR TAX MAIL!
You can send all your physical tax forms with the click of a mouse. Only our Postalocity application (“app” for short) allows you to upload the tax e-file that you sent to the IRS and will automatically create a PDF version to mail to your recipients. So, eliminate the stress of lining up fields on a pre-printed form, because we all know that doesn’t go well. Don’t order envelopes either, because we have that covered with our specifically designed tax envelopes.
With Postalocity earning the reputation as the “Easy Button” for regular business mail, it also makes financial sense. Check out our savings calculator here to compare the costs of mailing from your office versus using Postalocity.
How does this “app” work?
Postalocity is a simple drag and drop system that anyone with a computer can run.
I’ll give you a tax mailing example. The commonly used 1099 series (NEC, A, C, INT, MISC, OID, Q, or R) form used when any non-employee, subcontractor, lawyer, or accountant has been paid $600.00 or more over the year. You simply use our Postalocity “Wizard” to upload the e-files you submitted to the IRS and we will create the form and enter the appropriate data into the correct fields on the form.
From there you can review and proof the finished product on your screen before approving. Once approved you’ll be able to check over the mailing addresses. Postalocity NCOA’s and CASS Certifies the addresses so if anything is missing or spelled wrong it will auto correct to match the USPS’s database or it will flag it for you to review. If someone has moved it and updates their address with the post office, our database will automatically update that for you too! Such an excellent feature when past employees or contractors have moved. The cost savings in that feature alone should make your decision to automate your mail easy-peasy! Here’s a video about address correction and how simple the process is.
Then it’s ready for you to pay. Once paid our print team will be notified of your mailing and they’ll get to work. All your documents will be securely printed and inserted into your envelopes, so any privacy concerns you may have can be eliminated. You will get notified of the progress every step of the way until its mailed on the date you select.
Why should you trust us and not do it in office?
We provide documentation!
A couple great features of Postalocity is the ability to preview a handful of the mail pieces before they go out. This is something other mail houses don’t offer. We also provide affidavits and tracing information for all our mail pieces at no extra cost. You can also send certified mail within Postalocity to ensure the delivery has occurred.
If you want to submit your own personal or business tax documents via “snail mail,” we can do that as well! Since there will probably be a lot of pages to include, our system automatically switches to a flat envelope and calculated the postage for you. No more worrying about the postage being right.
Do I need to download software?
No need to download anything!
Postalocity is web based, just one more great thing about our system. So now you can send your tax mail and all your other documents while working from home, or from anywhere in the world, without the need for paper, stamps, printers, or postage machines.
Are you sure I don’t need to print anything?
If I were you, I’d stop ordering paper and other forms as soon as possible.
Put down those labels. Don’t add money to your postage meter. Quit buying envelopes. Stop paying for fancy printers. We have you covered!
Do I need to mail a lot of pieces to qualify to use the Postalocity system?
Whether it’s one or thousands, Postalocity allows anyone, anywhere the capability to have pieces printed and mailed quickly.
What about issues or errors?
Postalocity flags the problem and you’re notified immediately.
A team member will reach out to you to resolve the error if they see it may need a little help resolving. We’re all based in the United States and are available Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm. But you can email us anytime and we’ll be sure to respond!
