Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.
You can white out the wrong address and put the correct house number in the spot designated
The W-7 already mailed yesterday.
Then just fill out a new one and send it in
But TIN may be processed by the IRS.
Can the address be corrected after getting the TIN?
Yes, the taxpayer can send in a change of address form and get it changed
change of address form? but the applicant does not have TIN yet.
Once they have the TIN then they can send in the change of address form
When the TIN is issued, how to know it is issued?
The IRS mail may not be delivered because of wrong house number.
Yes, that is going to be the difficult part
There's really nothing you can do - once you send the form off, it's on its way to be processed. That's why I would file a second form - worst case they send you a letter saying that your TIN was already issued and then you can use that correspondence to get the information you need from the IRS
But original documents were sent with the W-7 mailed yesterday.
Well, there's not much you can do - other than hope that the mail comes back to the correct house
To make a new W-7, again original documents will have to be attached.
Yes, that is true
They would have to order and get those documents again
>hope that the mail comes back to the correct house
Can the post office help?
You could tell the local mailman or woman what happened, and if they are good they can be on the lookout for it
Will sending to the IRS a copy of everything that was mailed help in getting the address corrected?
Unfortunately that would not help.
what to do?
If the post office delivers, there is no problem.
Any expert on post office deliver matter?
>You could tell the local mailman or woman what happened,
Any form to fill out at the post office?
No there is no form to fill out for the post office
You would just have to hope for a mailman who was willing to keep an eye out for you
is that the ideal solution to this problem?
So to summarize, you would need to contact the local post office and hope they will help you watch out for this
Yes that's the ideal solution
