“Is it possible for the IRS to send my refund check to an address other than my home address?”---->I guess it is possible ;some report states that last year, the IRS ended up with more than$40 or $92 million it didn't want. That's the amount of unclaimed refunds that were returned to the agency because the checks were undeliverable. So, you need to make sure your tax-return address is correct -- whether you write it in, type it on your computer or use a preprinted label. A wrong address means missed money. Thousands of American taxpayers are on the move, but unfortunately they are leaving behind their tax refunds because the IRS doesn't have their new or wrong addresses. Last year more than $40 or$92 million in tax refund checks were returned by the Postal Service as undeliverable because taxpayers did not inform IRS about the change of address.
I can't direct deposit, so I need the check made payable to the home address that appears on my ID so I can cash it. Problem is I'm not physically at that address.” I need the check sent to where I am currently staying yet need the check made payable to my address that appears on my ID. Is this just impossible? Is there a form Other than change of address I can send?”---> Form 8822, "Change of Address," will be available from IRS forms distribution sites about the end of March by calling toll-free 1-800-424-3676. As you can see, it is really important to make sure you receive your refund is not the only reason for alerting the IRS to an address change. It also helps ensure you properly receive other important information and notices from the IRS. If the IRS sends a bill or notice of tax deficiency to a taxpayer's last known address, the notice is legally effective even if the taxpayer never receives it.
