How to mail to an Internal Revenue Service or State Tax office that does not have a street address or Post Office box

Some clients mail to Internal Revenue Service or State Tax offices that don’t include a street address or Post Office box. When preparing Certified Mail pieces one-at-a-time, leave the Address and Address 2 entries blank in Step 2: Recipient on the Create Cover Sheets & Labels screen, and be sure to check the “Bypass address validation” box at the bottom of the Step 2 screen. If you don’t the Address Validation screen will flag the address for missing a street address or Post Office Box.  Likewise, when mailing via the Batch Processing Wizard, leave the “ToAddress” and “ToAddress2” fields blank in your Excel or CSV file, then check “Bypass address validation” in Step 6 of the Batch Processing Wizard process.
