What is an ITIN?
An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS issues ITINs to individuals who are required to have a U.S. taxpayer identification number but who do not have, and are not eligible to obtain, a Social Security number (SSN) from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Do I qualify to get an ITIN?
If you need to file your tax return from previous years or you are partner in a partnership you need to get an ITIN number. There are more cases that you may qualify.
Do I need to renew my ITIN?
If you need to file a tax return and your ITIN has expired or will expire before you file the tax return you have to renew your ITIN. If you use an expired ITIN on a U.S. tax return, it will be processed and treated as timely filed, but without any exemptions and/or credits claimed and no refund will be paid at that time. You will receive a notice explaining the delay in any refund and that the ITIN has expired.
