The future of postage rates.

The USPS recently announced at their Mailer’s Technical Advisory Committee (MTAC) meetings that it will not file for a postage rate increase for 2016 on market-dominant products. The main reason is that the annual consumer price index (which is currently low) dictates postage increases under the Postal Reform Act.

And it only gets better. We could actually see a postage decrease soon when the 4.3 percent exigency rate increase of 2013 reaches $1.91 billion — what the USPS was allowed to recoup through an earlier DC Court of Appeals ruling meant to offset losses the USPS suffered during the recession.
