Welcome to the community.
When you file a tax return you always want to put the address that you're currently living at on the front page of your 1040 return. This is the address that you will receive IRS correspondence at if anything comes up and the address that will be on file with the IRS.
The address on your W-2 forms does not have to be the same as the one on your 1040 if you moved during the year and the same goes for the Form W-4 that you fill out when you start a job. However, the address you enter into any tax software in the income section on your W-2 form should match the one on your W-2. You can update the address on your W-4 by filling out a new W-4 with your employer at any time although it isn't necessary to do that right away.
As a side note, when you file your tax return remember to check the box that says you can be claimed as a dependent.
I hope this helps you out and I'll be here if you have any other questions.
