WASHINGTON — As taxpayers begin to prepare their tax returns, the Internal Revenue Service notes that some may be sending their returns to a different service center than last year. Those who received a tax instruction booklet from the IRS in the mail and use the labels included with the booklet can be assured that their tax returns will go to the correct address. Taxpayers who e-file are not affected by these changes.
For tax year 2004, the mailing changes affect returns, with or without payments, from Connecticut and Virginia and for returns with payments from Arizona and Utah.
Taxpayers should send:
Returns from Connecticut to the IRS in Kansas City, Mo.
Returns from Virginia without payments to the IRS in Fresno, Calif., and
Returns from Arizona, Utah and Virginia with payments to the IRS in Fresno, Calif.
For taxpayers who file paper returns, the correct center addresses are on the envelopes in the tax packages. Taxpayers who do not receive a package should refer to the back cover of the Form 1040, 1040-A or 1040EZ instructions.
Taxpayers who e-file will not be affected by these changes. Almost half of all individuals chose to e-file their federal tax returns in 2004.
