I am filing a 1040NR do I need an ITIN?

Yes - all US tax return filings require a TIN. For US citizens, residents or green card holders this is a Social Security Number (SSN). For non residents and part time residents of the US, you will need to apply for an ITIN simultaneously when filing a US tax return.

I sent my 1040NR without an ITIN, what happens now?

The IRS will process the return and issue you with a temporary number (known as an Internal Revenue Service Number or IRSN). This number logs the tax return on their system BUT will not allow you to pay any tax owed or receive any refund due, until you apply for and obtain an ITIN.

How do I apply for an ITIN?

I've tried to apply for an ITIN but keep getting rejected. Why?

ITIN applications get rejected for various reasons. It may be that the correct supporting documents were not attached or that the ID document or passport copy supplied was not acceptable. Other reasons include the form not being completed correctly. In some cases, it may be that you are not actually eligible to apply for one.
