Nine states and District of Columbia will file tax returns in new locations

The Internal Revenue Service has announced that some taxpayers who file paper income tax returns will send them to different processing centers this year.

 

Taxpayers in Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Virginia and the District of Columbia will now send their tax returns to the IRS Kansas City Service Center in Kansas City, MO. Taxpayers in Indiana and Michigan will send their tax returns to the IRS Fresno Service Center, in Fresno, CA. Taxpayers in Alabama will send their tax returns to the IRS Austin Service Center in Austin, TX.

 

For tax preparers and taxpayers filing paper tax returns for earlier years, IRS spokesman Anthony Burke told AccountingWEB that all prior year returns should be sent to the new mailing addresses for 2009 tax returns and not the addresses on the documentation supporting the prior year tax forms.

 

According to the IRS Web site, the Service continuously monitors work flow at its centers and makes appropriate adjustments by altering the volume of returns to be sent to each.

 

For taxpayers who file paper returns, the correct IRS service center addresses are on labels inside the tax packages they receive in the mail. Taxpayers who do not receive a package can refer to the online instructions for Form 1040, Form 1040A and Form 1040EZ.
