No SSN But Have Taxable Income?
You Need An ITIN!

What is an ITIN?

An Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) is a 9-digit number issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that individuals can use to process their taxes. The IRS gives ITINs to individuals who do not have Social Security Numbers (SSNs) and aren’t eligible to get one. ITINs are issued no matter what your immigration status is.


What can ITINs be used for?

  1. Individuals can use ITINs to abide by U.S. tax laws to file their tax returns while they’re ineligible for Social Security numbers.

  2. ITINs are used solely for federal tax reporting purposes by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

  3. Individuals can use ITINs to open bank accounts.


What can’t ITINs be used for?

  1. They do not authorize work in the U.S.

  2. They do not provide access to Social Security benefits.

  3. They cannot be used to file for the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit (Federal EITC).
