Where do I mail my federal tax return

Where to mail Form 1040? The taxpayers who are filing a paper tax return must mail their returns by April 15 to the Internal Revenue Service. If you aren’t required to file a paper tax return for any reason, we suggest e-filing though as it will be a lot faster for both you and the IRS.

The most common reason why taxpayers mail their returns to the IRS is to fill out certain tax forms that cannot be filed electronically. In these cases, the IRS needs to get the return mailed to them. One of the better examples of this is Form 4852 which is used for replacing Form W-2 in absence of it.

Regardless of the tax forms, you used to file your tax return with, you must mail Form 1040 along with the attachments to the Internal Revenue Service. As for the mailing addresses, they are below. The mailing address is different depending on your state of residence and whether or not you’re mailing your return with payment or not.

Take note that it takes between two and six weeks to process paper tax returns for the IRS. If you can e-file, we highly suggest doing so as it will take less time to receive your refund.

  1. I mailed the IRS mail Federal tax to Charlotte NC last week. (Check of $5.229.00) but just realized i did not mail the Statement of Annuity Paid of mine (1099-R) Do i need to send it and if so who do i send to.

    1. Hello Letitia,

      There is no need for panic. The IRS will send you a notice and in that notice, you will be requested to send copies of the forms. All you need to do is respond to that letter and attach the forms (1099-R in that case) missing on your return and send it back.
