An individual from Mexico (he is a Mexican citizen) set up an LLC in the united states. the individual wants to file a federal tax return. Are there any issues I should be looking at

My Name is***** ® professional.

I understand you would like to file a single member LLC tax return for non-resident alien.

Answer

In order for a non-resident alien to file a single member LLC tax return the non-resident alien needs to do two things.

{C}1) The nonresident alien would need to obtain an individual tax identification number (ITIN) by completing IRS form W-7. The ITIN is a tax processing number only available to certain non-resident and resident aliens, their spouses and dependents who cannot get a Social Security Number.

{C}2) Next the non-resident alien would have to complete the Form SS-4, this form requires the name and tax payer identification or ITIN number for one member of the LLC. This will allow the non-resident alien to receive a Federal Employer Identification number (FEIN).

I have included the links below to form W-7 and the link to apply for an Employer Identification number (FEIN)
