What is Form 8822?

Form 8822, or officially Change of Address, is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form that U.S. taxpayers use to notify the federal tax agency of their change of address.

Since the IRS sends correspondence, documents, and even checks, to taxpayers by mail, after moving to a new residence, it is the responsibility of taxpayers to notify the IRS to avoid miscommunication and any problems caused by not receiving important documents.

The federal tax agency uses the address listed in the most up-to-date tax return of a taxpayer when sending mail; thus, it is important for taxpayers to update the address they have on file when they move using Form 8822.
