  • It gets returned with the message stating, "Insufficient postage." I know this from personal experience, a long time ago, I had sent a letter with the insufficient amount of postage and it got returned. I hope this helps!
  • When insufficient postage is put on one letter, it will be sent on to it's destination. They will attempt to get the postage due from the recipient. Some companies have a postage due account for this purpose. Most companies would rather pay 2 cents and get your payment than return it. If they refuse to pay the postage due, it will be returned to you refused. You will then need to remail it in a different envelope with the full postage. IRS never pays postage due, so it will be returned immediately without trying to collect postage. If you mail 10 or more pieces with postage due on them, they will all be returned for postage. In this case, you can add the addiitonal postage and remail. (be sure you cross out the returned for postage stamp)

  • Well, unless you add 4 cents to the 37 cent stamp or 2 cents to the 39 cent stamp you will be under-postaged and your mail is subject to return to you.
