1040-ES mailing info for 2008 filings

UPDATE, Jan. 10, 2009: This data is for 2008 Form 2040-ES filings only. You can use the addresses below to send in your final 2008 payment (voucher #4) that is due Jan. 15, 2009. However, do not use them to mail 2009 estimated tax payments, the first of which is due April 15, 2009. Check your 2009 Form 1040-ES packet for current mailing addresses.

1040-ES filers, do you know where to send your estimated tax payment?

Mary in Connecticut asked and her inquiry raises a good point about these extra tax filings.

Your 1040-ES payments do not go to the same address that you sent your regular tax return. So if you were planning on using the mailing info in your Form 1040 or 1040A instructions, don't.

The correct mailing addresses can be found in the 1040-ES package. But so you don't have to click away, I've reproduced the info in the table below.

Yes, I know. I really need to get a life if making tax-related tables is how I spend my Saturday evenings. But I did it while also half-watching college football, so cut me some tax geek slack!

Yeah, some of these state groupings are bizarre, but the IRS parcels out the work according to volume, not geography. That's why states with lots of residents are, for the most part, grouped with less-populated states.

Also, be sure to send the correct payment voucher along with your payment. So if you don't have one, you will need to click over to the 1040-ES info to download it.

And note that all U.S. addresses are post office boxes, which means you must use the Postal Service to deliver your payment. So make sure you get there in plenty of time on Monday, since post officers don't hold special late-night tax filing collections for estimated payments like many do on the April due date.

John, Yikes! I did double check those, and I remember the 510000 P.O. box cuz I counted the zeros. But I guess in moving it from my Word doc to the blog, I dropped that ball. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I've added the missing states! TGIF! And no more working from computer only; printing out text next time to duplicate!


And if you live in one of the eight states not listed, you send your 1040-ES to:
Internal Revenue Service
PO Box 510000
San Francisco, CA 94151-5100


The EFTPS is nice but I agree with Kay, it takes way too long to get everything started.

Awesome chart though, I'm going to print it for future use :)


it is a great program, but you have to wait for the IRS to send you a password via the mail so it's not immediate. It takes some planning. Someone wanting to use the EFTPS system for the 9/15 payment is out of luck if they don't already have an account.


You can just open an account at EFTPS (https://www.eftps.com/eftps/) and pay your estimated tax online. Fast and secure.
