Frequently Asked Questions
An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). People who need a U.S. taxpayer identification number but are unable to receive a Social Security Number (SSN) from the Social Security Administration must acquire an ITIN number for tax purposes.
An ITIN number is composed of 9 digits beginning with “9” and is formatted like an SSN (NNN-NN-NNNN). U.S. residents or non-citizens must have an ITIN number in accordance with the Revenue Code to file their tax returns.
Do you have citizenship in the United States? Are you a green-card holder? Do you have a Social Security number, or do you qualify to get one? If the answer is no, then you must apply for an ITIN number to file your taxes in the US. Non-resident aliens who do not qualify for an SSN need to apply for an ITIN number. Spouses and dependents of US citizens, and green card holders are also eligible for the identification number.
