Tax Returns from Seven States Go to Different IRS Tax Centers

As some taxpayers begin to prepare their paper 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 2007, the mailing changes affect returns, with or without payments, from these seven states:
Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Tax Returns from Seven States Go to Different IRS Tax Centers

 

Taxpayers from these seven states should send:

  • Returns from Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma and Wisconsin to the IRS center in Fresno, California.
  • Returns from Kentucky to the IRS center in Austin, Texas.
  • Returns from Pennsylvania and West Virginia to the IRS center in Kansas City, Missouri.

For taxpayers who file paper returns, the correct center addresses are on labels inside the tax packages they receive in the mail. Taxpayers who do not receive a package should refer to the back cover of the instructions on Forms 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ.

Taxpayers who e-file will not be affected by these changes. Last year, 57 percent of all individual income tax filers chose to e-file their tax returns.

Even those who normally don’t have to file a federal tax return will have to file one this year in order to claim the economic stimulus payment. The tax return should be sent to the following special address (people who normally file a return each year should use the regular IRS mailing addresses contained in the Form 1040 instructions):
