Where is my IRS mailing address?

There’s plenty to think about when tax time rolls around. From figuring out the forms you need to fill out for each of your employees while tracking changes to tax laws, to making sure that you’ve reported all of your numbers correctly, the last thing you want to think about is the IRS mailing address to send your tax returns. 

The difficulty with the IRS mailing address is that there are many different locations, depending on where you live. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of addresses in an at-a-glance sheet to make this process as quick and seamless as possible.

Can you file a paper tax return?

While most people go for the e-filing or professional accountant route, it’s still entirely possible to file your income taxes by mail and all on your own. While filing the old way saves you from hacking risks, paper filing does tend to take longer, which means you might have to wait longer for your refund if you’re expecting one.

Where do I send my 1040EZ form?

Whichever version of the 1040 form you use (the exact form you use depends on how you’re filing), your 1040 form has to be mailed to the IRS upon completion. However, the answer to this question depends on where you are located. You can check our list below to determine your appropriate IRS mailing address.
