Individual Tax Identification Number, or ITIN is a US taxpayer identification number issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which allows the taxpayers without a Social Security Number (SSN) to file income tax returns.

This tax processing number is only available for both residents and non-residents, their spouses, and dependents who aren’t eligible for a  Social Security Number (SSN).

It is a 9-digit number, beginning with the number “9” which appears similar to an SSN (XXX-XX-XXXX).

Taxpayers with an expiring Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) are asked by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to submit renewal applications. Failing to do so results in refund and processing delays during this year.

Filing a tax return in 2020  is possible even if your  ITIN has expired or is about to expire soon.  It is advisable to submit your renewal application now to prevent potential delays in the processing of your return.
