The IRS accepts the First-Class postmark as proof of filing by April 18. The Postal Service provides these tips for income tax filers mailing returns:

If filing on April 18, mail early in the day at any Post Office. Be sure to verify Post Office hours of operation.

If depositing returns in a collection box on April 18, double-check the pick-up schedule on the collection box. To ensure getting the April 18 postmark, deposit returns before the last scheduled pick-up time.

Affix the correct postage. Some returns include many forms and require additional postage. IRS does not pay postage due and will return items to sender.

When possible, use the envelope provided by the IRS and be sure to include a return address. If the envelope provided by the IRS is unavailable, be sure to verify the IRS address where returns should be mailed.
