    Topic 157 – Change Your Address – How to Notify the IRS
    If your address has changed, you need to notify the IRS to ensure you receive any IRS refunds or correspondence. There are several ways to notify the IRS of an address change:

    When Filing Your Tax Return
    If you change your address before filing your return, enter your new address on your return when you file. When your return is processed, we’ll update your records. Be sure to also notify your preparer.

    Notifying the Post Office
    If you change your address after filing your return, you should notify the post office that services your old address. Because not all post offices forward government checks, notifying the post office that services your old address ensures that your mail will be forwarded, but not necessarily your refund check.

    By Form
    To change your address with the IRS, you may complete a Form 8822 (PDF), Change of Address, (For Individual, Gift, Estate, or Generation-Skipping Transfer Tax Returns), and/or a Form 8822-B (PDF), Change of Address or Responsible Party — Business, and send them to the address shown on the forms. For information on changing the “responsible party,” see Form 8822-B. You may download or print the fillable Forms 8822 and 8822-B or order them by calling 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).

    In Writing
    You may also write to inform us of your address change. If you write, we need your:

    full name
    old and new addresses
    social security number, individual taxpayer identification number, or employer identification number, and
    signature
    Joint Filers – If you filed a joint return, you should provide the information and signatures for both spouses. Send your written address change information to the campus addresses listed in the instructions to the tax forms you filed.

    Separated – If you filed a joint return and you now have separate residences, each of you should notify us of your new, separate addresses.

    Employment Tax Returns
    If the change of address relates to an employment tax return, the IRS issues confirmation notices (Notices 148A and 148B) for the change to both the new and former address.

    Processing
    It can take four to six weeks for a change of address request to fully process.
