A PO Box is an acceptable mailing address for the IRS. SEE BELOW:

--------------------------

Place the phrase “P.O. Box,” with your post office box number, on the street line of the address section on your tax return.

Write the city, state and zip code of your post office box on the indicated line in the address section of your tax return.

Check your P.O. Box regularly to pick up your tax refund when it arrives.
