by DerdriuMarriner

Mailing addresses for 2023 forms 1040 and 1040SR filed in 2024, due date Monday, April 15, are provided for the benefit of taxpayers filing in paper format.

Mailing addresses for 2023 forms 1040 and 1040SR filed in 2024, due date Monday, April 15, are provided for the benefit of taxpayers who choose to submit their 2023 federal individual income tax returns in paper format.

Known as Tax Day, April 15 is the standard annual due date for filing U.S. federal individual income tax returns. Exceptions exist. For example, in 2023, the celebration of the Emancipation Day holiday, observed annually on April 16 in Washington D.C., occasioned the designation of Tuesday, April 18, as the deadline date for filing 2022 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return forms 1040 and 1040SR.

In 2024, the April 15 deadline is extended to Wednesday, April 17, for residents of Maine and Massachusetts. The deadline extension recognizes their annual observance of Patriots' Day, according to IRS Tax Year 2023 1040 (and 1040-SR) Instructions ("When and Where Should You File," page 8). Patriots' Day, observed on the third Monday in April, commemorates the American Revolutionary War's Battles of Lexington and Concord.

Forms 1040 and 1040SR: paper or paperless formats

 

U.S. taxpayers usually file their individual federal income information via forms 1040 or 1040SR. "Everyone can file Form 1040. Form 1040-SR is available to you if you were born before January 2, 1959," the IRS states in section "Line Instructions for Forms 1040 and 1040-SR" (page 12) of IRS Tax Year 2023 1040 (and 1040-SR) Instructions.

Two formats are available for filers of forms 1040 and 1040SR. The paperless format associates with electronic filing (e-file). Electronic-formatted Free File is identified in the instructions booklet for forms 1040 and 1040SR. "This public-private partnership, between the IRS and tax software providers, makes approximately a dozen brand-name commercial software products and e-file available for free. Seventy percent of the nation's taxpayers are eligible" (page 7). Taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $79,000 or less in 2023 qualify for the free tax software.

Paper format filing entails mailing completed forms 1040 and 1040SR to specific addresses determined by residence location and by no payment-enclosed, payment-enclosed or refund-requested tax returns. Six IRS centers have responsibility for processing 2023 forms 1040 and 1040SR filed in 2024 ("Where Do You File?," page 114 [back cover]). The three centers for 2023 individual income tax returns with either refund requests or no-enclosed payments for taxes owed are sited in Kansas City, Missouri; Austin, Texas; and Ogden, Utah. Payment-enclosed 2023 forms 1040 and 1040SR are mailed to IRS centers in Louisville, Kentucky; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Cincinnati, Ohio.

 

The 2024 Tax Day of Monday, April 15, extends to Wednesday, April 17, for taxpayers in Maine and Massachusetts, where the annual observance of Patriots' Day occurs on the third Monday In April.

The 2024 Tax Day on Monday, April 15, necessitates taxpayers required to file to decide to "file, pay or request an extension."

Mailing Addresses for Forms 1040 and 1040SR

 

Mailing addresses for 2023 forms 1040 and 1040SR are given in a table on the back cover of Tax Year 2023 1040 (and 1040-SR) Instructions booklet (page 114). The Internal Revenue Service has correlated six tax return processing centers with eight groupings. The first seven concern forms 1040 and 1040SR mailed by taxpayers located in the District of Columbia and the 50 U.S. states.

The eighth group comprises taxpayers in special situations of living in a foreign country or a U.S. territory, of using an APO or FPO address, of filing Form 2555 for Foreign Earned Income (URL: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f2555.pdf) or Form 4563 for Exclusion of Income for Bona Fide Residents of American Samoa (URL: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4563.pdf), or of being a dual-status alien.

Taxpayers who requested a six-month extension of the due date of their Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR via Form 4868:
Remember that you may file your completed form at any time during the six months.

For potential filers whose status (single, married filing jointly, married filing separately, head of household, qualified surviving spouse) changed during the year: Your filing status is determined by your situation on the last day of the year. Accordingly, 2024 filings of Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR are determined by the filer's status on Dec. 31, 2023.
"Your filing status is determined on the last day of your tax year, which is December 31 for most taxpayers" (Publication 17: Tax Guide 2023 for Individuals, "Do I Have To File a Return? Individuals -- In General: Filing Status," page 7).

DerdriuMarriner on 04/18/2024

Remember that the five federal filing statuses have different gross income requirements. The lowest gross income requirement of "at least $5" applies to those who are "married filing separately."
"If you didn't live with your spouse at the end of 2023 (or on the date your spouse died) and your gross income was at least $5, you must file a return regardless of your age" (Publication 17: Tax Guide 2023 for Individuals, "Do I Have To File a Return? Table 1-1. 2023 Filing Requirements for Most Taxpayers," page 7).

DerdriuMarriner on 04/18/2024

For those who are not required to file Form 1040 or Form 1040SR: Overwithholding, in which the amount of federal taxes withheld during the year exceeds the taxes that are owed, results in refunds.
But if you are not required to file a return, you will only receive the refund by filing Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR. The IRS will not contact you to inform you about refunds. You must file in order to claim your refund.
"Refund on a late-filed return. If you were due a refund but you did not file a return, you must generally file your return within 3 years from the date the return was due (including extensions) to get that refund" (Publication 17: Tax Guide 2023 for Individuals, "Reminders," page 3).

DerdriuMarriner on 04/17/2024

For federal form 1040 or 1040-SR taxpayers who live in Maine or Massachusetts: Wednesday, April 17, also has been designated as the 2024 due date for filing for a six-month extension with Form 4868 for form 1040 and 1040-SR filers living in these two New England states.
"File Form 4868 by April 15, 2024 (April 17, 2024, if you live in Maine or Massachusetts)" (Form 4868, "When To File Form 4868," page 2).

DerdriuMarriner on 04/17/2024

For federal form 1040 or 1040-SR taxpayers who live in Maine or Massachusetts: Remember that the 2024 Tax Day has been extended from Monday, April 15, to Wednesday, April 17, for federal taxpayers living in these two New England states. Patriots' Day annually is celebrated on the third Monday in April. Because the third Monday in April in 2024 falls on Monday, April 15, the IRS has designated Wednesday, April 17, 2024, as the due date for forms 1040 and 1040-SR filed by taxpayers in Maine and Massachusetts.
"Due date of return. File Form 1040 or 1040-SR by April 15, 2024. If you live in Maine or Massachusetts, you have until April 17, 2024, because of the Patriots’ Day and Emancipation Day holidays" (Publication 17: Tax Guide 2023 for Individuals, "1. Filing Information: What's New: Due Date of Return," page 6).
