Can I get my tax refund sent to a post office box or my work?

I haven't done my taxes yet, and am concerned someone may steal my refund. Can I have my refund sent to a post office box (not sure how long it would take to change mailing address). There is tampering going on in my neighborhood.

Put your routing and account number in the boxes on the bottom of page 2 of the 1040; it will be directly deposited into your account. Problem solved! Otherwise, they will mail your check to the address on your tax return...so if you want it to go to a PO box, you'll have to put that as your address. The IRS doesn't like PO Boxes as addresses. They like to be able to show up at your door. :)

you can have it sent directly to your checking account if you like. just fill it out and email it in. in a much shorter period, you'll get your refund directly deposited.

you just have to fill out the address portion differently, i think. otherwise, it's going to your house.

If you're using a tax service, like H&R Block, most give you the option of having the check sent to their office.

Do direct deposit. They have an option for that in Turbo Tax and Kiplinger's.

Better than that, you can have it directly deposited in your acct. The 1040-es form has all the things you fill out.

Good luck and God bless
