Client gave me a W-2 with a specific address that is incorrect for the reported refund. What is the process to get this address changed to the correct mailing address?

If the return has been efiled and accepted, you can't change without sending an amended return or Change of Address form.    If you need to change before IRS issues a refund check ....you're SOL.

That's odd, all of my clients closely review the return before I e-file it.  But then again, maybe that was just a really good dream I had last night.
