If you changed your home or business address, you'll want to remember these six tips to ensure you receive any refunds or correspondence from the IRS.
- You can change your address on file with the IRS in several ways:
- Correct the address legibly on the mailing label that comes with you tax package
- Write the new address in the appropriate boxes on your tax return.
- Use Form 8822, Change of Address, to submit an address or name change any time during the year.
- Give the IRS written notification of your new address by writing to the IRS center where you file your return. Include your full name, old and new addresses, Social Security Number or Employer Identification Number and signature. If you filed a joint return, be sure to include the information for both taxpayers. If you filed a joint return and have since established separate residences, both taxpayers should notify the IRS of your new addresses.
- Should an IRS employee contact you about your account, you may be able to verbally provide a change of address.
