Has Your ITIN Expired?

What You Need to Know

According to the IRS, if you require an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN)--required in lieu of a Social Security Number--to file a tax return, you are likely to experience processing delays if you file using an expired ITIN.

  • There are two reasons your ITIN would expire December 31, 2017: 

    • If you have not used your ITIN on a U.S. tax return at least once for tax years 2014, 2015 or 2016 or
    • If your ITIN has the middle digits 70, 71, 72 or 80   (9NN-70-NNNN)

  • If your ITIN has middle digits 78 or 79, it expired December 31, 2016, but you can still renew it.

 What You Need to Do

Renew your ITIN now if it has or will expire and you need to file a U.S. tax return in 2018.

  • You don’t need to take any action to renew your ITIN if you are not required to file a tax return.

  • Understand the new documentation requirements when applying for or renewing an ITIN for some of your dependents. See ITIN FAQs for details.

  • Ensure you submit an accurate W-7 and valid ID documents.

  • Find more information at IRS.gov/ITIN.
