If the change of address relates to an employment tax return, the IRS issues confirmation notices: Form 148A/B whenever you change:
- Business address, or
- Third-party designee name
But I did not change anything?
The IRS determines your business address changed if you change how you display your address on your tax filings.
To avoid confusion, you or your tax preparer should always enter your address, in the same way, every time you file tax returns.
How will I know if the address has been changed?
The IRS will send the CPs 148 to both the employer's former (148B) and new (148A) addresses to confirm the address change;
What is this notice about?
The IRS changed your mailing address because:
- They received an employment tax return;
- You submitted Form 8822-B to change the business address or responsible party for your company;
- If you submit your taxes with a different business address by mistake, you'll be notified by the IRS;
- Notification of any address variation from the address of record for the business entity, e.g., interchanging "Street" for "St.
What do you need to do?
- If the address change is correct, you don't need to do anything;
- If the address change is not valid, please return the notice to us with a completed Form 8822-B, Change of Address or Responsible Party - Business.
- Keep the notice for your permanent records;
- Submit Form 8822-B when you need to update your address in the future;
- The IRS will update your address. They might make minor changes in words and abbreviations, such as using "Street" rather than "St.".
