The Domicile Address Requirement in a trademark office action means the USPTO is missing the domicile street address of the applicant, be it an individual or a legal entity.

A domicile address must identify either the permanent legal place of residence or the principal place of business. P.O. Boxes or addresses of third-party mail receiving agencies cannot be used as domicile addresses.

If the applicant is concerned about privacy, the domicile address can be kept private if the mailing and domicile address provided are not the same and correct electronic forms are used.
