Using State Abbreviations

Abbreviations of the states are used for postal addresses and in data processing, for the purpose of saving time and standardizing the appearance of addresses. State abbreviations should not be used when writing formal correspondence or for school reports. When making a reference to a state, the full name should be spelled out. Abbreviations should be reserved solely for address purposes and used after a city's name and before a zip code.
