Am I Eligible to Apply for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number?

ITA Home

This interview will help you determine if you should file an application to receive an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). An ITIN is a tax processing number, issued by the Internal Revenue Service, for certain resident and nonresident aliens, their spouses, and their dependents.  

Information You'll Need

  • The type of visa, if the person applying has one.
  • The reason why an ITIN is needed.

A taxpayer whose ITIN has been deactivated and needs to file a U.S. return can reapply using Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. See ITIN  for more information.
