ITIN ASSISTANCE

Our Liberty offices make the ITIN process less complicated by helping you apply for an ITIN or renew your tax ID number for FREE with paid tax preparation.

WHAT IS AN ITIN?

An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a United States tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service for those who need to file a federal tax return but aren't eligible for a Social Security number.

ITIN RENEWALS

All ITINs not used on a federal income tax return at least once for tax years 2017, 2018, or 2019 will expire on December 31, 2020. Additionally, all ITINs with middle digits 88 (For example: 9NN-88-NNNN) will expire at the end of this year. Those with middle digits 90, 91, 92, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98 or 99, that were assigned before 2013 and have not already been renewed, will also expire at the end of this year.

CERTIFIED AGENTS

Our Certified Acceptance Agents can verify your supporting documents, which means you only have to send copies to the IRS and can take the originals with you when you leave. Apply for an ITIN or ITIN renewal at a participating location for free.

UNDERSTANDING THE ITIN

If you need to file a federal tax return, but are not eligible for a Social Security Number, you must obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) from the IRS. Although it sounds simple, the ITIN process can be complex.

Also, with new requirements under the PATH Act, taxpayers who have not used an ITIN on a tax return in the last three years must renew their tax ID number before filing a 2018 tax return.
