If you’ve moved or you are planning on moving, don’t forget to update your mailing address with the Internal Revenue Service.
Normally, IRS just mails correspondence to the last address you listed on your last 1040 return, but if you’ve moved since then and your forwarding order with the post office has expired, you could miss out on important correspondence or even refund checks.
Fortunately, updating your address with IRS is fairly easy. Visit https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc157 to download a copy of Form 8822. The first page of the form lists information about you and your new address. The second page of the form has a list of addresses by state for mailing the form to IRS. Just fill it out, sign it (both spouses need to sign if filing jointly), and mail it in.
