Seeking New York State mailing address for tax return with debit payment

For mailing a New York State tax return with a debit payment, TurboTax instructions say to use this address: 

State Processing Center, P.O. Box 15555, Albany, NY  [removed].

However, New York State's own filing instructions say only mailed returns enclosing check or money order payments should go to that address.  In contrast, they say tax returns not enclosing a check or money order should be mailed to:

State Processing Center, P.O. Box 61000, Albany, NY  [removed].

Just to be sure, which is the right address for a return with a debit payment?

I would mail your NY paper tax return without a check to the PO Box 61000 address.  The IRS and some states use a bank lockbox to process tax receipts.  So the 15555 address may be a bank lockbox address.  TurboTax probably doesn't know or not programmed that you are using ACH debit to pay your balance due. 

 

Here's the from IRS on their lockbox program.  I can't say for sure that's what NYS is doing.  But I would follow the NYS instructions.
