What is the difference between a U.S.P.S postmark date, a postage meter date, and a commercial carrier date?

Only the U.S.P.S. postmark is the legally acceptable date that we can recognize as far as determining if the tax payments were “mailed” on time. The postage meter date is not a U.S.P.S. postmark ‘date’ and is NOT a postmark, nor is it recognized by law as being the ‘mailed’ date. We can legally accept a ‘mailed date’ from four federally recognized commercial carriers. They are: Airborne, DHL, FedEx, and UPS. Rev & Tax Code sec 2512.
