IRS Mailing Addresses for Tax Payments

Pay Taxes By Check or Money Order

by Kathleen Krueger

If you owe taxes to the IRS, it is important to know the correct address to send your money. Sending your tax payments to the wrong IRS address could result in delayed processing that makes you liable for late fees and interest charges.

Unfortunately, there is no singular IRS payment processing hub. Instead, you must mail your check or money order to the IRS center that handles your particular type of tax payment. Sending your payment to the proper address helps ensure it will be processed correctly and on-time.

To mail a tax payment, make your check or money order payable to “U.S. Treasury”. Be sure to include your name, address, phone number, taxpayer ID number (Social Security Number or Employer Identification Number), the tax period, and the related tax form or notice number on your form of payment.

NOTE: Do not mail cash to the IRS.

Mail Individual Tax Payments (Form 1040-V)

If you owe money on your tax balance, you can make your payment by mailing a check or money order to the IRS. In some cases, you may receive an IRS notice showing your balance and where to send your payment. Or you can use Form 1040-V (Payment Voucher) to pay the amount due on your Form 1040, Form 1040A, or Form 1040EZ.
