So if the tax filing deadline for 2013 taxes is April15th 2014 what does that really mean for filing and submitting your return and/or payment?A date-setting method for use in a postage meter having date wheels includes the steps of setting the date wheels, printing a date on a mail piece, requesting an input indicating whether the date printed on the mail piece is correct, receiving a response in the negative, receiving information indicative of the date printed on the mail piece, resetting the date wheels, logging a record indicative of the negative response and the resetting action, printing another date on a mail piece, requesting an input indicating whether the date printed on the mail piece is correct, receiving a response in the negative, receiving information indicative of the date printed on the mail piece, resetting the date wheels, logging another record indicative of the negative response and the resetting action; and annunciating the records indicative of negative responses.The visual inspection is not easy because the indicia on the wheels present a mirror image.The "8" and "0" indicia look normal but the other digits are reversed.By far the majority of postage meters in use around the world are meters of just this type.

The postal authorities are also comfortable with the notion of the print rotor being a pure mechanical device even if the main body of the postage meter contains some electronics.In such a model the rotor itself is also about as simple as it can be.Stated differently, if one wanted to minimize the complexity of the interconnection between the rotor and the main body of the meter, and to minimize the complexity of the rotor itself, among the things one would do is to eliminate automatic, mechanical control of as many things as possible, and to leave as many things as possible to be set manually by the user.First and foremost the design has to satisfy the requirements of PTTs (postal authorities such as the U. Closely related to this is the concern that the design of the meter be such that any tampering with the meter will be readily apparent to relatively untrained postal service personnel during periodic meter inspections or during the activity of resetting a meter to contain more postage value.As a practical matter the manufacturer of the postage meter must also guard against the other direction, namely loss by the user of postage value for which the postal service has already been paid; the design features addressing the former generally also address the latter.The tax deadline for 2013 is quickly approaching and I'm sure many of you who were scheduled to receive a tax refund have already filed and even cashed your refund check.
