I'D LIKE TO ADD FILING INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILING FORM 8822 CHANGE OF ADDRESS TO THIS PAGE.  IS THIS POSSIBLE?  THE CLIENT COPY BURIES THE FORM 8822 IN THE BODY AND THE FILING INSTRUCTIONS ARE BURIED IN A SMART WORKSHEET AT THE BACK.  THANKS!

Why file form 8822?  Filing the return with the new address is sufficient.

One would think but that would be too easy.  It's not always true.  I've asked IRS by phone several times over the years and was always told to file the 8822 as well to be safe.  Remember we're dealing with an antiquated IRS system. My best practice is to always file the 8822 separately at the same time filing the 1040 with the new address.
