We often get asked about what our users need to do in order to change their address with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The good news is that the most common way of notifying them is simply by filing your taxes. However, there are other ways which we will list below for you:
Tax return – this is the #1 way people change their address with the IRS
You can file a Form 8822 with the IRS which you can find here.
Written statement – You can send the IRS a written statement containing you full name, old address, new address, and social security number. You then mail that statement to where you filed your last tax return.
Oral notification – You can tell the IRS in person or by telephone. To verify your identity you will need your full name, your address, your date of birth, and your social security number.
Electronic notification – Currently you can only notify the IRS electronically of your address change if your refund check was returned to them. You can go here for more details.
If you have further questions we would encourage you to go to irs.gov to get answers and/or to contact them.
