Form 8822 (Change of Address)
Updated: Jan 13, 2021
Refund checks sent by IRS or state government can get lost and, in the worst case, can be cashed out by someone else even though they are electronically filed and selected the option to directly deposit it to a bank account if it is not the most recent tax refund, such as refunds in 2018, 2017, or 2016.
