    Twice a year.
    Four times a year.
    As a separate payment when file your annual tax return.


  3. When you move, you need to let the IRS know your new address by:

    Sending the agency a post office-issued change-of-address card.
    Entering your new address on your next tax return.
    Filing Form 8822 as soon as you're settled in your new home.
