The IRS, the USPS, and You

Just FYI, if you happen to be in the same situation I am with the stimulus payment (i.e. moving before you're supposed to receive it), you need this page of the IRS handbook, which I stumbled onto by sheer luck. Filling out a mail forwarding form (which you can do online for $1 here) does not forward your government documents, so you need to alert government agencies separately.

Very good to know. I already got my stimulus check, but I can see how it could be useful.

I'm in the same boat but worried - the IRS change of address form says it takes 4-6 weeks for an address change to be processed. That's much longer than it will take to get a stimulus check! Any thoughts? I thought the post office forwarded all 1st class mail.

Love your blog by the way - very inspirational.

Emi, I think what I would do in this situation is leave a note in your mailbox (or send a letter there addressed to "Current Tenant") explaining the situation, and including a self-addressed, stamped envelope so that the new tenant can easily forward you the check. Just an idea.

Thanks for the compliment and for reading!

i read this post a week or so ago. i had already alerted USPS about my new address, so i did as you recommended and completed the new address form with the IRS.

happily enough, the post office did forward my stimulus check! it's going in the savings account tomorrow. yay.

your blog is fantastic! thanks for sharing.
