The IRS issues ITINs to individuals who are required to have a U.S. taxpayer identification number, but do not have and are not eligible to obtain a Social Security number (SSN) from the Social Security Administration (SSA). ITINs do not serve any purpose other than federal tax reporting.

Expiration and renewal of ITINs: ITINs that have not been included on a U.S. federal tax return at least once in the last three consecutive tax years will expire. ITINs that were assigned before 2013 have expired according to an annual schedule based on the middle digits of the ITIN. The middle digits refer to the fourth and fifth positions of the ITIN. For example, the middle digits for 9xx-78-xxxx are “78.” Expired ITINs must be renewed in order to avoid delays in processing your tax return.


ITINs not used in the last three consecutive tax years: If your ITIN wasn't included on a U.S. federal tax return at least once for tax years 2013, 2014, 2015, your ITIN has expired on December 31, 2016. You need to take action to renew it if it has to be included on a U.S. federal tax return.


ITINs with the middle digits 78 and 79: If your ITIN’s middle digits (the fourth and fifth positions) are “78” or “79,” your ITIN has expired on January 1, 2017. You need to take action to renew it if has to be included on a U.S. federal tax return.
