Description of Service
The Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) is a number issued by the IRS to individuals who cannot receive a social security number in order to help them file their taxes. A new law will require some taxpayers to renew their ITINs.
All ITINs issued before 2013 expired at the end of 2019, starting with those with middle digits of 83, 84, 85, 86 or 87 (example 9XX-83-XXXX) and all ITINs not used on a federal tax return at least once in the last three years will also expire.
ITINS with middle digits 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81 or 82 already expired in 2017 and 2018. If you didn’t renew an ITIN with these middle digits last year, you may still need to renew
Individuals with expired ITINs will not be eligible for some tax credits, and will not be able to receive their tax refund until they renew their ITIN. To renew an ITIN, individuals will need to submit an IRS Form W-7 by the end of 2019 (See Helpful Tips).
Limited, call for specific information
Call, walk in, or visit the website to receive a W-7 form; W-7 forms should be submitted by the end of 2019.
Complete and submit a Form W-7 application. In order to complete the W-7 application you will need to submit original documents or certified copies of documents confirming your foreign status and identity. The most common supporting documentation used are passports or national identification cards. The process could take up to 11 weeks. Instead of mailing in your supporting documents, you can present the documents in person through an acceptance agent. To get a list of agents, visit IRS.gov and enter “acceptance agent program” (See Helpful Tips below).
Many public libraries and post offices have IRS forms available for individuals to complete.
Clients who do not wish to submit their W-7 form via mail can visit a Certified Acceptance Agent (CAA) or a designated Taxpayer Assistance Center (TAC), which can be located using the following links.
