Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)

What You Need to Know

You are likely to experience processing delays if you file a tax return using an expired Individual Taxpayer Identification Number.
There are two reasons your ITIN would expire December 31, 2018: 

If you have not used your ITIN on a U.S. tax return at least once for tax years 2015, 2016 or 2017
If your ITIN has the middle digits 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 81 or 82 (9NN-73-NNNN)

If your ITIN has middle digits 78 or 79 (expired 12/31/2016), or 70, 71, 72 or 80 (expired 12/31/2017), you can still renew it. 


What You Need to Do

Renew your ITIN now if it has or will expire and you need to file a U.S. federal tax return in 2019.
You don’t need to take any action to renew your ITIN if you are not required to file a federal tax return.
Understand the new documentation requirements when applying for, or renewing, an ITIN for some of your dependents.
Ensure you submit an accurate W-7 and valid ID documents.
