Request SS-4 Online by Mail
When you are filling out your tax forms, one of the most important things to do is fill out a SS-4 form. The SS-4 form is going to tell the IRS where you want them to send your tax refund and how much you want them to send back. In this blog post, we will discuss what a SS-4 form is and why it’s so important that everyone fills it out when they file their taxes, and the best thing is, you can request ss-4 by mail!
If you’re looking for a tax refund, it’s important that you fill out a SS-form when filing your taxes.
The SS-form will tell the IRS where to send your refund (and how much of it they should send back) and also helps them figure out what additional tax credits, if any, you are eligible for.
That means filling this form out is super important!
The SS-45 form is important because it tells the IRS where to send your tax refund and how much you want them to send back. The US Postal Service has a postal address for this exact purpose! It’s called “Internal Revenue Service Center, Austin TX” and the zip code is 78201. If there are no changes that need made, then simply mail in your SS-440 with payment (check or money order) enclosed and wait until you get an email from the IRS saying they received everything successfully.
What do I need in order to complete my tax return?
If you’re filing a joint federal income tax return, then your spouse must sign the paperwork. If they refuse and are not on record as being deceased or mentally incapacitated, this means that someone else needs to sign for them (if there’s no one who can legally act on their behalf). Even if your name isn’t the same as last year, you still probably have everything needed: a social security number with an ITIN extension of nine digits; date of birth written out numerically in mm/dd format; current address at which the IRS may mail correspondence from now until April 15th 2020; taxpayer identification number such as a social security number, Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number (ATIN); or Employer Identification Number (EIN).
More than likely you’ll need a copy of your social security card. If both spouses are present and able to sign the document, then each spouse will be required to provide their signature in front of either an original or notarized copy of their social security cards.
If they’re deceased but have surviving children who can act as decision makers for them at this time, those individuals must also show proof that it’s okay with them before proceeding on behalf of the parent-in-need. The same is true if there was child abuse involved at any point during childhood; someone other than the surviving parent will need to sign off on the request as well.
If you’re a dependent who never applied for your own social security number, then you’ll have to provide evidence of U.S citizenship or legal status in order to be eligible for an SSN card. For instance, this could be shown by providing proof that they were born here or are currently living in one of the states with no income tax and has filed a residency statement form (such as those available through New Mexico).
