The U.S. Postal Service is an independent agency of the U.S. government that ensures that every person in the United States – no matter who, no matter where – has the right to equal access to secure, efficient, and affordable mail service. The Postal Service has been self-supporting since 1982. All income is generated from the sale of stamps and related services and no tax dollars (including from income or sales taxes) is used to pay for the operation of services.
