My address is incorrect within my return

Unfortunately you can't change the address shown on a tax return if you've already filed it.  However, if you requested an electronic direct deposit of your tax refund, then your mailing address should not matter.

To change or update your address independently of your tax return, you can file Form 8822 with the IRS.  It's a simple one-page form with one page of instructions.  You can fill it out by hand and file it by regular mail.  Here is a link to that document: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8822.pdf 

You will also need to contact your state to inform them of the mistake with your address.https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1901670-how-do-i-contact-my-state-department-of-revenue
