Tax Professionals to Send Some Returns to Different IRS Centers Than Last
Year

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is urging tax professionals to
be aware of changes that will affect where they send tax returns and
payments for clients in 10 states starting in 2004. The changes are a
result of redistributing workload among the 10 IRS processing centers to
provide better service.

Tax professionals whose clients are in the Metro New York area and
Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Michigan, Montana, Rhode Island, Tennessee,
Utah and Wyoming will be filing their returns with different IRS centers
during the 2004 filing season. For clients in Arizona and Washington,
they will send returns with payments to different IRS addresses although
other returns will continue to go to the IRS center in Fresno.

Because many tax professionals will need the addresses for IRS centers
before the tax filing season, the IRS is providing them now. The
addresses are attached.

For taxpayers who file paper returns, the new center addresses will be
provided on the envelopes in the tax packages. Taxpayers who e-file will
not be affected by these changes. More than a third of all individuals
choose to e-file their federal tax returns.
