Provided the document is in the proper form, the postage is prepaid, it is properly addressed to the Clerk of the Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and Tax Court, and is deposited on or before the day it is due, the document is deemed filed as of the date it is placed in the United States Mail.

The postmark on the envelope creates a rebuttable presumption that the document was placed in the mail on the date indicated by the postmark. Documents placed into a U.S. postal box after the last scheduled pick-up should be accompanied by an affidavit stating under oath the date and time the document was placed in the U.S. postal box.
