Info on ITIN Renewals

You don’t need to renew an expiring Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), if you won’t be filing a tax return or claim for refund. But, in the future, if you file a U.S. tax return or refund claim, the ITIN (including for a dependent) will need to be renewed. This is among the new information offered by the IRS in revised set of FAQs about ITINs. The IRS issues ITINs to people who must file U.S. tax returns, but who aren’t eligible for a Social Security number (SSN). SSNs don’t expire, but ITINs do, if they’re not used on a tax return for three consecutive years, or after a certain period. Click here to read the FAQs. For questions, contact the Cg Team. © 2020
