What is an itin?
Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the IRS.
The IRS issues ITINs to individuals who are not eligible to obtain a Social Security Number (SSN), but who are required to have a U.S. taxpayer identification number.
ITINs do not serve any purpose other than federal tax reporting.
