Question No Fixed Address

My partner is a low income earner and as he works long hours he just crashes at work, he is technically of "no fixed address". He believes he can't file his taxes unless he has a address and bank account to bank refunds into and therefore hasn't submitted his taxes for the past four years (stupid I know). (he has all the forms complete and required documentation, just never sent it in)

My question is can you file your taxes when you don't have an address?

Thanks,

Ange.

Can you file your tax returns without a Fixed Address?

The answer is yes, you can and must file tax returns even if you have no fixed address. You can recommend to your friend that he provide a forwarding address so that the he can at least receive the tax refund checks.

Also with respect to having no bank accounts, you can still cash your refund checks despite having no bank accounts. You do not need a bank account and you can always go to the cash checking services available in most towns and cities in this country and they will all be too happy to cash your tax refund check for a nice fee!

You must encourage him to file all of his prior year years tax return.
