An ITIN will serve as your identification number for filing your taxes. With certified tax professionals and Certified Acceptance Agents (CAA's) Nationwide, our offices are well-equipped to guide you through the ITIN number application or ITIN renewal process.
Let’s say you’re working and earning money in the United States, but you don't qualify for a Social Security Number. An ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, type of Tax ID or Taxpayer ID) will serve as your identification number for filing your tax returns. If you do not qualify for an SSN, you will need to apply for an ITIN.
Here's what else your ITIN does:
So your ITIN tax ID not only helps you file a tax return, it ensures you get the refund you deserve as quickly as possible.
Your ITIN application or renewal service is free when we prepare your U.S. federal income tax return.
To begin the ITIN application process, you will need:
You can fill out an application form for an ITIN for you, your spouse, and your dependents when you prepare your tax return with us.
While the ITIN application or renewal process can be done with any of our tax pros, using a Certified Acceptance Agent (CAA) makes the process a bit easier. Why? With this service, offered at certain participating offices, the CAA will verify your supporting documents. And, because they're verified on-site, your original documents may not need to be mailed to the IRS. Our CAA will submit copies of these documents, along with your ITIN application or renewal, to the IRS for you. Ask your tax professional if a CAA is available at your location.
All ITINs issued before 2013 with the following ITIN ranges with middle digits (4th and 5th digit) should renew in 2019.
ITINs that previously expired (middle digits of 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81 or 82) can still be renewed.
We have tax professionals and Certified Acceptance Agents (CAAs) available to answer your questions and quickly process your renewal for free.
If you try to file your return with an expired ITIN, your refund could be considerably delayed.
After you apply for an ITIN and qualify for an ITIN number, you could receive a letter from the IRS assigning your tax identification number in as early as seven weeks. However, the speed in which it takes to get an ITIN number depends on the volume of inquiries the IRS receive — it can take nine to eleven weeks during busy times.
