Using the Internet is a good way to save time and money for your business. One of the easier ways to save money and time on the Internet is to pay credit card bills online. It takes about five minutes to setup bill paying online. You can either pay portions of your bill when money allows, or you can setup the system to automatically pay your bill each month before the due date. For more information about specific policies and requirements, visit your credit card company’s Web site or click on these links to major credit card companies:
Another way to save time and money by using the Internet is by buying stamps online. The US Postal Service sells stamps online at www.stampsonline.com and will mail them directly to your door. You can even print postage directly on to envelopes from the Web. It costs 10 percent more to print postage from the Internet, but you save time by not waiting in line and you will never run out of postage. These following four companies are authorized to provide online postage:
IMPORTANT: THE IRS AND OTHER TAXING AUTHORITIES STILL DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE DATE STAMPED BY THE ABOVE COMPANIES AS PROOF OF A MAILING DATE. NOR DO THEY RECOGNIZE POSTAGE METER DATES. SO WHEN MAILING TAX DOCUMENTS, ALWAYS USE STAMPS OR TAKE YOUR ITEM TO THE POST OFFICE FOR A POST MARK.
