My home address is not my p.o. box.

You should always use the address that you would like the IRS to contact you when filing your tax return. Your mailing address is what should be listed and not your home address. Check to be sure the address on your return is where you would like to receive mail if the IRS needs to contact you. If something is incorrect follow the steps below.

Here are the instructions to change your address with the IRS IRS Form 8822 Address Change.

If you cannot print the form you can let them know In Writing

If you write, they need your:

  • full name
  • old and new addresses
  • social security number, individual taxpayer identification number, or employer identification number, and
  • signature

Also, don't forget to contact your state as well.  I'll post the states contact links below.
