IRS announces last minute address changes for filing tax returns
The Internal Revenue Service has announced that taxpayers in Delaware, Illinois, New York, and Rhode Island who file paper income tax returns will send them to different processing centers this year.
Taxpayers in Delaware, New York, and Rhode Island will now send their tax returns to the IRS Kansas City Service Center in Kansas City, MO. Taxpayers in Illinois will now send their tax returns to the IRS Fresno Service Center, in Fresno, CA.
The IRS continuously monitors work flow at its centers and makes appropriate adjustments by altering the volume of returns to be sent to each. Taxpayers who use the envelope provided with the income tax instructions do not have to be concerned with the address change, their returns automatically will go to the correct center.
Taxpayers who e-file will not be affected by the address changes.
For taxpayers who file paper returns, the correct center addresses are on labels inside the tax packages they receive in the mail. Taxpayers who do not receive a package and need the service center address should refer to the back cover of the instructions to Form 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
