Can I apply for an ITIN online?

U.S. resident and non-resident aliens, as well as their dependents or spouses, can fill out all the necessary paperwork for an ITIN number online. Applications are accepted by mail or in person at the IRS anytime you need an ITIN number throughout the year. Applications are not currently accepted electronically, however. New and renewal applications can take up to seven weeks to be approved by the IRS, but our online application expedites the time involved filling out the paperwork. Upon completion, you’ll receive a downloadable PDF with your completed W-7 form and detailed filing instructions.

Everything You Need in One Place

It is critical that the W-7 form is filled out correctly and all of your supporting documentation is included. Otherwise, your application may be delayed or rejected. ITIN W-7 Application offers convenient, step-by-step ITIN W-7 instructions and a checklist to ensure that you don’t miss a thing and that you receive your nine-digit tax processing number from the IRS as quickly as possible. Streamline the process even more by having the following information readily available when you begin: 

- U.S. visa number 

- Foreign tax ID number (if applicable) 

Even if you have completed the paperwork before and already have a number, the ITIN renewal process is slightly different. If you have recently gotten married or are claiming a dependent, you’ll need to obtain tax processing numbers for them too by filling out the online application and providing supporting documentation.
