ITIN Application - The process we understand
If you need to file a federal tax return, but are not eligible for a Social Security Number, you must obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) from the IRS. Although it sounds simple, the ITIN process can be complex.
Also, with new requirements under the PATH Act, taxpayers who have not used an ITIN on a tax return in the last three years must renew their tax ID number before filing a 2018 tax return.
ITIN applications and renewals are FREE when you file a Federal tax return at our office.
WHAT IS AN ITIN?
An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a United States tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service for those who need to file a federal tax return but aren't eligible for a Social Security number.
Why you need an ITIN?
It serves as your identification number for filing your federal taxes.
It allows you to get a refund from your income withheld by the IRS, if you qualify.
It allows you to file your taxes and claim dependents you support.
With an ITIN you may be able to open a bank account.
