- Find forms or online software. Post offices do not have tax forms.
- Complete either tax returns or extensions (both federal and AZ)

How much postage do I need for my tax returns?First class postage is 49 cents for the first ounce, 70 cents for between 1 and 2 ounces, 91 cents for between 2 and 3 ounces. You should have the post office compute it if your envelope is heavier or if you are sending your tax return in anything larger that a regular #10 envelope. A rough estimate is that 4-5 pages of 8-1/2 x 11 paper (some paper is heavier than others) in a #10 envelope is about an ounce. If your mail is thicker or heavier, add more stamps! It would be silly to risk a late filing penalty because of a stamp, wouldn't it?
