Taxpayers should update their address with the FTB if they change their address and file any of the following income tax returns:
- Forms 540, 540 2EZ, California Resident Income Tax Return; or
- Form 540NR, California Nonresident or Part-Year Resident Income Tax Return
Taxpayers may complete and mail a paper Form FTB 3533, Change of Address for Individuals. If the change also affects the mailing address of children who filed separate tax returns, complete a separate Form FTB 3533 for each child.
Taxpayers may also change their address over the phone by calling the FTB at:
However, the quickest way to update a mailing address is through a MyFTB account. If an address is changed online or by phone, Form FTB 3533 does not need to be mailed.
Some tips to keep in mind:
- If a post office does not deliver mail to a street address, affected individuals should show their P.O. Box number instead of a street address; and
- If an individual has a foreign address, follow the country’s practice for entering the city, county, province, state, country, and postal code. Do not abbreviate the country name.
