I filed an E-1040 with TaxAct, forget to submit Form 8938. I have the 8938 form where do I send it?

Q) I filed an E-1040 with TaxAct. All the figures and computations were correct, so the IRS should have no trouble accepting the filed forms. I did, however, forget to submit Form 8938, which merely indicates how much money I have in a foreign bank. I have the 8938 form, so I just need to know where to send it and whether adding my social security number is sufficient to link it to my 1040 for 2015.

A) Yes, adding your Social Security number is sufficient to link Form 8938 to your 2015 Form 1040. You can mail Form 8938 to the following address:

Internal Revenue Service Attn: Form 8938 P.O. Box 12192 Cincinnati, OH 45212-2192

You can also file Form 8938 electronically using the IRS’s Free File program. To do this, you will need to create an account with the IRS and select Form 8938 from the list of available forms.

Here are some additional tips for filing Form 8938:

  • Be sure to sign and date Form 8938.
  • Be sure to include your Social Security number on Form 8938.
  • Be sure to include the correct filing year on Form 8938.
  • Be sure to include the correct amount of money on Form 8938.
  • Keep a copy of Form 8938 for your records.

I hope this helps!
