When Do I Need An ITIN?

An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service. It is a nine-digit number that always begins with the number 9 and has a range of 70-88 in the fourth and fifth digit. Any individual who has tax filing or payment obligations under U.S. law but is not eligible for a Social Security Number (“SSN”) typically uses an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number.
