There are several ways available to a taxpayer to inform the IRS of a potential change in the taxpayers address. These are as follows:

2. IRS form Use Form 8822
The Taxpayer may inform the IRS of an address change by filing out the "Change of Address or Form 8822-B
3. Written statement.
The Taxpayers may send a signed written statement with the following information as follows :
- Full name
- Old address
- New address
- Social Security number
4.Call the IRS.
The Taxpayer can either call the IRS by telephone or go in person and inform the IRS of an address change. Of course the IRS will need to "verify the taxpayers identity and address" so taxpayers are requested to have the necessary verification information necessary such as:
- Taxpayer's full name
- Taxpayers address
- Taxpayers Social Security number
5. Electronic notification
The Taxpayers can also notify the IRS electronically if the taxpayers refund check was returned back to the IRS. Taxpayers are advised to "Use Where's My Refund?
to complete your change of address online. Again, the Taxpayers are required to provide their "Social Security number, filing status and the amount of your refund."
