It isn’t technically moving season around here but our team is in full swing with several moves in the coming weeks. I guess if 2020 has taught us anything it is that we are not following the norms this year. Moving is stressful and when you add a pandemic on top of everything it can be downright overwhelming.

I shared my tips about moving during COVID a few weeks back (see that post here) but it can be easy to forget that physical stuff isn’t the only thing that needs to be organized. The paperwork and details of moving to a new home are just as important and can be just as overwhelming.

This week, I am focusing on the change of address component of moving. I have put together a free downloadable checklist so you can keep track of everywhere you need to change your address when you move. Download the checklist by joining our newsletter list below or by clicking here to see a few tips and links to streamline your change of address process below.

How to Change Your Address When You Move

We have gathered links and information about changing your address for a few of the most common locations – I’m looking at you USPS. Every move and situation will be different so make sure you double check you local information but these tips and our downloadable checklist will get you heading in the right direction.

  • USPS:

    • Your address can be changed online here. There is a $1.05 fee to change your address online and you will need a valid credit card.

  • Social Security Administration

    • Updated online here

  • IRS

    • You have three options when changing your address with the IRS.

      • File your tax return.If you have not completed your most recent tax return, file it with your new address. The IRS will update your records to match the address on your return.

      • Complete Form 8822 and mail it directly to the IRS.

        • If this change also affects the mailing address for your children who filed income tax returns, complete and file a separate Form 8822 for each child.

        • If you need to change your business mailing address or location, use Form 8822-B.

      • Call the IRS

        • More here.

        • Before you call make sure you know the following details:

          • full name

          • new address

          • old address

          • date of birth

          • social security number, ITIN or EIN
