ATTENTION! If you use an ITIN number, this information is very important.
Undocumented immigrants have until December 31, 2019 to renew the Taxpayer’s Personal Identification Number (ITIN), which is used to pay taxes, in addition to requesting refunds or having exemptions , as established by the Tax Collection Office ( IRS).
“Your ITIN may expire before filing a tax return in 2020,” warns the IRS. ” All ITIN unused in a federal tax return to the least once in the last three years will expire on December 31, 2019″ .
Also, all ITIN numbers issued before 2013 with middle digits of 83, 84, 85, 86 or 87 (Example: (9XX-83-XXXX) will also expire at the end of this year.
Taxpayers should receive Notice CP-48 and send their Form W-7 to renew the number, which should only be omitted if the holder already has a valid Social Security number (for employment authorization or if he is a Permanent Resident) that allows you to make your tax return in form in 2020.
Many immigrants who lack a Social Security number use the ITIN to file taxes, but also to receive refunds for their minor dependents (CTC).
However, if you do not renew it on time, you can file a return in 2020, but you will not have any refund .
It is worth mentioning that ITINs with middle digits 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81 or 82 that expired in 2016, 2017 or 2018 can also be renewed.
Remember to consult an accounting expert to carry out your procedure correctly.
