Which address should I use? APO or off-post?

I am stationed overseas and I am living off-post. So should I fill out my address as my APO box or my physical address?

It would be best to use your APO box as your address. 

 

  1. Login to your TurboTax Account 
  2. Click "My Info" from the left side of your screen
  3. Please scroll down to “Mailing address”  and click "Edit"
  4. Select "Military (APO, FPO, or DPO" as "Type of mailing address"

Another question, I haven't been back to the U.S. in two years and my family has since moved out of CA. Is that still considered my permanent address if that's the state I lived in when I joined the military?

Yes, the state you were a resident of when you joined the military is your home of record and resident state unless you actually make an effort to change that with finance/legal.
