Re: [tips_and_tricks] The IRS Has Your Address!
The "address of a taxpayer" is known to the IRS via a couple methodologies and all involve YOU volunteering:
- Last time you submitted a tax form.
- Last time you submitted a change of address form.
- Other than that they CONJECTURE and hope you volunteer to tell them that their conjecture was ok.The IRS subscribes to the various credit reporting agencies. The credit reporting agencies are used by banks, credit card issuers, background check people, etc. Thus when you fill out a credit application of often change your address for your card, a notation is placed in the credit file. The IRS will peruse these files from time to time if they can't find you or if mail addressed to a previous address comes back. They will then send you out a very nice letter asking you to confirm the address.
