While applying for citizenship application, it asks for addresses for last 5 years.

Hello Judith,
Yes it is the same permanent address on driver license and tax returns as well.
Thank you for your help.
Expert:  Judith replied 5 months ago.

Then the address on your driver license and tax return is the address you would be considered to be domiciled at.

However I would like to understand better what is your permanent address that you have a lease at or pay rent? I don't understand what this "other address" is. A significant other's address where you stay frequently or did you actually move there and get all your mail at this "other address" and have a lease or mortgage there?Judith

I have lived at other addresses for my job. However, my permanent address stayed the same.
Expert:  Judith replied 5 months ago.

Do you have a lease for "other address"?

You are not helping me with clarity.

Do you ever go to your permanent address and stay there?

I am going to have to opt out if you cannot express yourself.

The need for clarity can affect where you will be eligible for swearing in - which USCIS field office where you will have interview and where you are considered to have the required 3 months residence. That is why you need to clearly express yourself.

I will give you a telephone call option so you can perhaps explain better talking.
