Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax adviser with over 20 years of experience.
If you are asking about receiving a Tax Identification Number for yourself or another individual
, an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service
issues ITINs to foreign
nationals and others who have federal tax reporting
requirements and do not qualify for Social Security Numbers (SSNs).
Use the latest revision of Form
W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number to apply. Attach a valid federal income
, unless you qualify for an exception, and include your original proof of identity or copies certified by issuing agency and foreign status documents.
Because you are filing your tax return as an attachment to your ITIN application, you should not mail your return to the address listed in the Form 1040
, 1040A or 1040EZ instructions. Instead, send your return, Form W-7 and proof of identity and foreign status documents to:
