Here we have a tip from the IRS for taxpayers who moved to a new location.
If you changed your home or business address, you'll want to remember these six tips to ensure you receive any refunds or correspondence from the IRS.
1. You can change your address on file with the IRS in several ways:
2. Be sure to also notify your employer of your new address so you get your W-2 forms on time.
3. If you change your address after you've filed your return, don't forget to notify the post office at your old address so your mail can be forwarded.
4. Taxpayers who make estimated payments throughout the year should mail a completed Form 8822, Change of Address, or write the IRS center where you file your return. You may continue to use your old pre-printed payment vouchers until the IRS sends you new ones with your new address. However, do not correct the address on the old voucher.
5. The IRS does use the Postal Service's change of address files to update taxpayer addresses, but it's still a good idea to notify the IRS directly.
6. Visit IRS.gov for more information about changing your address. You can find the address of the IRS center where you file your tax return or download Form 8822, Change of Address. The form is also available by calling 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
Remember that all of the web page addresses for the official IRS website, IRS.gov, begin with http://www.irs.gov. Don' t be confused or misled by internet sites that end in .com, .net, .org or other designations instead of .gov. The address of the official IRS governmental Web site is http://www.irs.gov/.
