Yes, you can enter P O Box as your address only if the post office does not delivermail to your physical address.

Relist: I still need help.
so in my first question I can basically hide my physical address from the irs? they dont have any laws on having a physical address?
Expert:  RD replied 10 years ago.

Note that you can use P O Box only if the post office wont deliver to your physical address. So you cannot hide your physical address if you have one. Infact IRS has the information on your physical address through the mortgage interest, W-2 , social security and other forms filed with the IRS.
