Most ITIN applications require a U.S Federal Tax return attached as part of the W-7 ITIN application process. However there are limited ITIN exceptions where a U.S. Federal Tax return is not required.
If any of the 5 ITIN exceptions apply to you, then you will not need to attach a U.S. Federal Tax return.
Information reporting and/or withholding requirements apply to third parties (frequently banks and other financial institutions) who will request an ITIN to enable them to file information reports that are required by law.
Exception 3 - Third-Party Reporting of Mortgage Interest
3. Individuals with a home mortgage loan on real property located in the United States.
To support the claim that you are eligible to use this exception - Submit a copy of a contract of sale indicating mortgage used for purchase of a home
Note: For all exceptions listed above - Federal tax withholding and/or information reporting must take place within the current tax year.
