An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service. Fidelity needs this to report the distribution form the account to her.
IRS issues ITINs to help individuals comply with the U.S. tax laws, and to provide a means to efficiently process and account for tax returns and payments for those not eligible for Social Security Numbers (SSNs).
She needs to use the latest revision of Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number to apply. She qualifies for an exception based on the Fidelity request. She should include her original proof of identity or copies certified by issuing agency and foreign status documents. She would mark "h" on the W7.
