What is an ITIN, and what is it used for?
An ITIN, or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service(IRS). ITINs are issued by the IRS to people who require a U.S. taxpayer ID number but are ineligible to receive a Social Security Number.
ITINs can be issued to anyone regardless of immigration status. Individuals must have a filing requirement and file a valid tax return to receive an ITIN number.
Who needs an ITIN?
The IRS issues ITINs to foreign nationals and others who have tax reporting or filing needs but are not eligible for a Social Security Number. You can call Miami Tax Expert, 305-810-8509, and find out if you need an ITIN.

How do I apply?
