Can I apply for an ITIN dependent online?
Claiming a non-citizen child as a dependent on your federal tax return who does not have or is not eligible to receive a Social Security Number requires an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, more frequently referred to as an ITIN. You can fill out the W-7 application for an ITIN number online and download a printable PDF with the completed form, but the IRS requires that the application and supporting identification documents be mailed or delivered in person along with your federal tax return. This ensures that ITINs are used for tax reporting purposes only, as they are not supposed to be used for identification or employment purposes.
At ITIN W-7 Application, we simplify the document preparation process. Our online service guides you through each step with easy-to-follow instructions and includes a convenient checklist containing the documents required for ITIN to ensure nothing is overlooked. The IRS requires a combination of two or more documents on the list to prove the identity and foreign status of the dependent. Because it can take the IRS up to seven weeks to issue the nine-digit number after you apply for an ITIN and you could incur a penalty for not filing your tax return by the deadline, it is critical that nothing is out of place that could delay the process any longer.
