Where to Send 2013 Tax Return
Filing taxes is an essential task that every individual needs to complete each year. Once you have completed your 2013 tax return, the next step is to send it to the appropriate address. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) provides different mailing addresses based on the type of tax return you are filing and whether you are including a payment or not.
Here is a guide to help you determine where to send your 2013 tax return:
1. If you are expecting a refund and are not including a payment:
– If you live in Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, or Texas, mail your return to Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service Center, Austin, TX 73301-0002.
– For all other states, mail your return to Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service Center, Kansas City, MO 64999-0002.
2. If you are including a payment with your tax return:
– If you live in Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, or Texas, mail your return to Internal Revenue Service, P.O. Box 1302, Charlotte, NC 28201-1302.
– For all other states, mail your return to Internal Revenue Service, P.O. Box 1214, Charlotte, NC 28201-1214.
It is important to double-check the appropriate address by referring to the instructions provided with your tax forms or by visiting the IRS website. Using the correct address ensures that your return is processed promptly and without any delays.
1. Can I electronically file my 2013 tax return?
Yes, you can still electronically file your 2013 tax return if you have not done so already. However, the IRS only accepts electronically filed returns for the current tax year and the previous two years.
2. How long do I have to file my 2013 tax return?
The deadline to file your 2013 tax return was April 15, 2014. However, if you were unable to file by that date, you can still submit your return within three years to claim a refund.
3. Can I mail my 2013 tax return to my local IRS office?
No, you should not mail your tax return to a local IRS office. Always use the appropriate address provided by the IRS based on your location and the type of return you are filing.
4. What if I made a mistake on my 2013 tax return after I have already mailed it?
If you realize you made a mistake on your 2013 tax return, you can file an amended return using Form 1040X. Follow the instructions provided with the form to correct any errors.
5. Can I still file my 2013 tax return if I didn’t earn any income that year?
If you were not required to file a tax return for 2013 because your income was below the filing threshold, you may still choose to file if you are eligible for certain credits or want to claim a refund.
6. Can I track the status of my 2013 tax return?
No, the IRS does not provide online tools to track the status of a tax return filed in a previous year. You can only track the status of current-year returns.
7. What if my 2013 tax return gets lost in the mail?
If you believe your tax return was lost in the mail, you can contact the IRS at their toll-free number to inquire about the next steps you should take.
8. Can I still submit my 2013 tax return if I owe taxes but can’t afford to pay?
Yes, even if you are unable to pay the taxes you owe, it is important to still file your tax return. You can then explore payment options such as installment agreements or an offer in compromise to settle your tax debt.
