A Change of Address Form is a document that contains a request from an applicant to a particular organization to deliver their correspondence to another address where they will be able to receive it.
The process of an Address Change starts with the applicant filling in the appropriate application. Some government entities - namely, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), U.S. Postal Service (USPS), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) - have developed their own Address Change Forms.
Notifying the USPS that an address change took place does not mean that all government agencies are notified about it as well. An applicant must notify each one of them separately, otherwise, they will carry the responsibility of not getting their correspondence addressed to them. It can not only cause inconvenience but also make the applicant subject to penalties.
Each State DMV has developed its own Change of Address Form as many states use different regulations when it comes to changing an address. The periods and fees vary: consult with the local DMV office about the regulations applicable in the region.
For example, in New York drivers are required to inform the DMV about an address change within ten days from when the change took place. In the State of Connecticut residents are required to notify the DMV of any change of address within 48 hours.

If the applicant does not have the appropriate form, they should contact the organization where they are going to file it to find out if they have their own Address Change Form. The place where an applicant can get their own copy of the document depends on the entity they are going to notify with this form:
