Will my stimulus check go to my old address?
According to the Internal Revenue Service’s website, it will mail a letter with information about how and where the stimulus payment was made, which sounds super helpful. But it will be sent to the same address that is on file (which we’ve already established is the wrong address).
How do I update my address for the stimulus check?
You can update your address in five ways:
- In-person by visiting a local IRS office.
- By calling 1-800-829-1040 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time.
- By filing Form 8822, Change of Address.
- By using your new address on your next tax return.
- By mailing a written statement to the location you’d normally file your tax return.
What happens if your stimulus check gets lost in the mail?
Fortunately, the IRS has a procedure to help. If your third-round stimulus payment is lost, stolen or destroyed, you can ask the IRS to perform a “payment trace” to see if your check was cashed or direct deposit misdirected. Ultimately, if everything goes smoothly, you’ll be issued a new payment. That’s the good news.
