Individual Tax Identification Numbers

What are Individual Tax Identification Numbers?

Individual Tax Identification Numbers (ITINs) are nine-digit tax processing numbers issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to individuals who are required to have a U.S. taxpayer identification number but are not eligible for a Social Security Number (SSN).

ITINs are essential for individuals who need to meet their U.S. tax obligations. If you are a nonresident alien or a foreign individual needing to report income from U.S. sources, such as rental income or other types of taxable income, having an ITIN will allow you to fulfill your tax obligations and potentially claim exemptions or credits.
