If you need to file a federal tax return, but are not eligible for a Social Security Number, then you must obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) from the IRS. This may sound simple at first, but the ITIN process can be incredibly complex without proper guidance. For example, if you have not used an ITIN on a tax return in the last three years, then you’re legally required to renew your ITIN before filing a new return.
