Not just for Form 843 but for all IRS forms, you should be sure of the address where you report your forms to the IRS. Whether you use Form 843 or another method, you must be able to provide the IRS with accurate information.
In addition, the form must be filed within the statutory period. If a claim is made late, the IRS may not accept the claim. Also, information is needed to ensure the processing of Form 843. If a claim is made on time, the IRS can take as little as three to four months to process it.
The IRS can process Form 843 within three to four months, but it may take longer if the form is incomplete or missing information. You can also send your Form 843 by postal service or virtual fax.
