Still To Send U.S. Tax Returns To Des Moines Iowa taxpayers in this upcoming tax filing period should send their completed Federal income tax returns to the District Director, P. O. Box 1337, Des Moines, Iowa, according to Ernest W. Bacon, IRS District Director for the State of Iowa. Bacon's announcement was made to clarify current filing requirements for Iowa residents in view of a new law recently signed by President Johnson, which will require taxpayers to file returns directly with a regional service center. The new law, however, will be put into effect gradually in various parts of the nation over a period of several years, and does not affect Iowa taxpayers at the present time. It was pointed out that, under present procedure, Federal tax returns of Iowa residents are filed with the district office in Des Moines, and after initial handling there, are packaged and shipped to the IRS Service Center in Kansas City, Mo., for processing by automatic data processing (ADP) equipment. Bacon also stated that, as mandatory direct filing is phased in for the State of Iowa, his office will issue advance announcements and instructions to keep taxpayers Informed.
