How can I get a ITIN ?
Q) How can I get a ITIN ?
A) To obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), you can file Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). You can submit the application along with your federal income tax return or separately. You may need to obtain an ITIN if you are not eligible for a Social Security Number (SSN) and need to file taxes, open a bank account, or apply for certain types of credit.
You can find Form W-7 and its instructions on the IRS website. The instructions provide details on the types of documents you need to submit with your application to prove your identity and foreign status. You can also make an appointment at an IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center to submit your application in person.
It is important to note that obtaining an ITIN does not provide lawful immigration status or work authorization, and it is not valid for obtaining a state driver’s license.
