Form 3115 vs Form 8453 (different Mailing address)

I needed to file Form 3115, which triggered Form 8453. I have successfully e-filed to the Federal, with a copy of Form 3115 and 8453. According to the instruction, I need to mail a copy of these forms. 

 

1. Form 8453 - indicated that I should mail it to IRS at Austin , TX

2. Form 3115 - indicated that I should mail it to IRS at Ogden, UT 

 

My question, specifically, is what exactly to include and to which address - should I mail/include a copy of Form 1040, Form 8453, Form 3115 and the attachments, to EACH of the 2 addresses above?

 

Many Thanks!

You are probably better off faxing the form to the IRS (otherwise mail it to the address applicable to the 3115).

Thank you.

 

I had planned to do that (mail to the UT address according to the IRS website).

 

But then I saw the address printed on FORM 8453, which has a different mailing address (in TX). So wondering if I should send 2 separate mails and with what content?

You could send the forms and statement to both addresses. However, it would be infinitely easier to fax them to the IRS fax number.

If I fax over Form 3115 and the supporting statements, do I still need to mail Form 8453 to the Austin Tx address?

I e-filed and already mailed a physical copy of the 3115 with Form 8453 to the IRS Austin, TX address (from Form 8453). Should I fax an additional copy to the IRS fax number per the 3115 Instructions?

If you already mailed, you do not need to fax it.
