How Do I Apply For An Itin?

To obtain an ITIN, you must complete IRS Form W­7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. You may complete and sign a Form W­7 for a minor dependent. However, other dependents and spouses must complete and sign their own Forms W­7. The Form W­7 requires documentation substantiating foreign/alien status and true identity for each individual. If you, your spouse and/or dependents need ITINs, you may submit separate Forms W­7 and documentation at the same time. You may mail the documentation, along with the Form W­7, to the Philadelphia Service Center, present it at IRS walk­in offices, or process your application through Acceptance Agent authorized by the IRS.
