I have a client that has a different mailing address than their physical address (PO BOX) How do we put both on the return.

IRS wants to know where to send you mail, Id use the PO Box.  You cant input 2 addresses.

Yes I'd use the mailing address on the 1040.

But some states, such as MD, also require you to tell them your physical address as of 12/31/20.

I have some folks that live places where there is no PO street delivery.  Some of those folks will provide a street address followed by the PO Box.  As long as the physical address isn't too long, I will sometimes go that route and type both addresses on the address line of the return.

Barber! Why didn't I think of this before? Getting paid to give out bad tax advice - need I say more? I've run with scissors for years so it is a natural fit.

I've done that, too.
