IRS Encourages Taxpayers to Renew ITINs; Delays Expected for Those Who Missed Deadline

Tax returns with expired ITINs will face processing delays and affected taxpayers may lose eligibility for key tax benefits until the ITIN is renewed.

An ITIN is used by anyone who has tax-filing or payment obligations under U.S. tax law but is not eligible for a Social Security number. Under a series of provisions established by the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act enacted by Congress in December 2015, ITINs not used on a tax return at least once in the past three years were set to expire.
