Actually, Sept 7th, 2010 is the first day USCIS will accept your package... just to be on the safe side, send it after that date - one or two days late aren't going to cause a major delay, but one or two days late will render your application early and waste a week worth of waiting to receive package back and mail it again.

There is a calculator online that provides this functionality but I personally use MS Excel and it does the trick....
