by default the same as your source but with the __addr__ suffix. You should see something like below, there are three main things most clients concentrate on: Addrscore, DPV, and errorcode
the addrscore column, this represents the CASS address validation
Main items -
0 = good
anything but 0 = failed CASS, we wouldn’t recommend updating your data with what we returned.
some examples of the various scores – such as
4 - the best match would result in too many suspicious changes.
6 – no street address was given.
8 – The street may contain superfluous components which cannot be discarded with confidence.

Coding Accuracy Support System
The Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) enables the United States Postal Service (USPS) to evaluate the accuracy of software that corrects and matches street addresses.
CASS Certification must be renewed annually with the USPS to meet current CASS Certification cycle requirements.
CASS software will correct and standardize addresses. It will also add missing address information, such as ZIP codes, cities, and states to ensure the address is complete. CASS software will also perform delivery point validation to verify whether or not an address is a deliverable address and check against the USPS Locatable Address Conversion System (LACS) to update addresses that have been renamed or renumbered.
A correct address saves the Postal Service time, money and manpower by reducing the volume of 1) non-deliverable mail; 2) unsorted mail; 3) mail that is deliverable, but requires extra effort to determine the proper location to which it should be delivered.
DPV_corrected column, DPV is the second level of validation, CASS is the first
There are 4 main return items
Starts with Y – valid for all delivery points – show an example of an address both with and without a street
Starts with an S = means that an apt/suite is there, but not what the USPS expects
Starts with D, means that there is possibly missing secondary apt/suite information
Starts with an N – means that it's only valid down to the street, the house number is not deliverable, it's just within an expected range
the Errorcode column – this indicates changes we made to the input.
such as this input
|Address1:||23 State Route 339 S|
Turned into this:
|Street_corrected:||23 State Route 339 S|
It has an errorcode of APQRT
meaning these changes were made:
A – normal street match
P – City corrected
Q – State corrected
R – Zip corrected
T – Zip+4 corrected
