After reviewing the PostGIS Tiger Geocoder documentation, I don't see a method of returning the TIGER Line Id for the address. I would assume this is information is available internally as part of the the street range interpolation processing.



A geometry is returned as part of the geocode() result, by which you can use to locate the nearest ID from any table that has a geometry column.

select gid from tiger.edges order by st_setsrid(the_geom,4326) <-> ST_GeomFromText('POINT(-71.06941 42.34225)',4326) limit 1;
