Tax Stamp Answer

In the next to last post, I questioned what stamps were used to mail my state and federal income tax returns.

No one, including myself, was able to provide an answer.

However, by pure chance, the receipt for the transaction popped up.

Two line items as follows :

24c Buckeye PSA qty 1 $0.24
87c Albert Sabin PSA qty 2 $1.74

total = $1.98

Commenter Bob got the fact that a 87c stamp was involved

From the USPS :

First-Class Mail Rates
First ounce $0.39
Each additional ounce $0.24

First-Class Mail Rates Weight not over (ounces) Rate

1 $0.39
2 0.63
3 0.87
4 1.11
5 1.35
6 1.59
7 1.83
8 2.07
9 2.31
10 2.55
11 2.79
12 3.03
13 3.27

*Over 13 ounces (see Priority Mail).

The remaining question is whether all of the higher ounce points above 3 (87c) have their own stamp, or only some of them.
