  • Per United State Postal Service regulations, any person receiving their mail through a Commercial Mail Receiving Agent (CMRA) must fill out a USPS 1583.

  • This form authorizes Texas Home Base to receive our client’s mail.

  • The USPS 1583 must be accompanied with 2 forms of ID for each person receiving mail at your new address.
    • Acceptable forms of ID include: valid driver’s license or state non driver’s identification card; armed forces, government, university, or recognized corporate identification card; passport, alien registration card or certificate of naturalization; current lease, mortgage or Deed of Trust; voter or vehicle registration card; or a home or vehicle insurance policy. 
    • Unacceptable forms of ID include: Social Security cards, credit cards, and birth certificates.

  • This form also requires that you get it notarized.
    • You should be able to find a local notary either online or at your local courthouse. Also, some banks have notaries available to their customers.
    • If you are out of the country, you may be able to find a notary at the US Embassy or you may use a non-US notary to confirm your identity.

  • These requirements are necessary to ensure that no one is trying to steal your identity.

  • This form does not change your address with the USPS. You will have to fill out a “Change of Address” form at your local Post Office.

  • You must send us the physical form to: 
    • Texas Home Base, 1530 PB Ln, Wichita Falls, TX 76302

  • If you can send proof that the physical form was sent to Texas Home Base with a tracking number before 4:30pm on a business day, an address will be sent to you that day. If we receive the tracking number after 4:30pm or on a weekend, an address will be sent the next business day. You can send the tracking number to accounts@texashomebase.com.

  • If you do not send us a tracking number, the address will be sent as soon as we have received the physical form.

  • You can send us the image(s) of your 2 IDs (one must contain a photo) via the following options:
    • Upload the IDs using our Upload My ID page
    • Send a printed scan of the IDs with your physical 1583 form

  • If you have any trouble uploading your IDs, please see our Upload Troubleshooting page.

  • Your Texas Home Base contract will not begin until we have received this form and the acceptable IDs.
