As Certified Acceptance Agents (CAA) we can assist you in renewing your ITIN.

Who needs to renew an ITIN?


You need to renew an ITIN if you will file a U.S. tax return listing the ITIN with a middle digit of 88 and 90 to 99 (for yourself, your spouse, or any dependent).  ITINs that have not been used on a tax return for Tax Year 2017, Tax Year 2018 or Tax Year 2019 will expire December 31, 2020


Your ITIN will expire as of January 1, 2021. If you don't renew the ITIN and file a U.S. tax return with that same ITIN, there may be a delay in processing your tax return as well as delays in any refunds due.

Who does not need to renew an ITIN?


You do not need to renew if:

  • you will not be using the ITIN  on a U.S. tax return*.

  • The ITINs are only used on information returns filed with the IRS by third parties. However, in the future, if you use the ITIN to file a U.S. tax return (including for a dependent), you will need to renew the ITIN at that time.

  • The owner of the ITIN became a U.S. citizen or legal resident alien and has a social security number (SSN). You don't need to renew your ITIN; however, you do need to provide the SSN and previous ITIN to the IRS (Tel: 855-723-2060 ext 244 or if outside the U.S. +1-267-941-1000)


* a U.S. tax return for yourself, your spouse or any dependent

N.B Renewal applications have already commenced on a staggered schedule. If you are unsure if you are required to renew, please contact us. ITINs with middle digits 70 to 87 have already expired and can be renewed at any time. ITINs 88 to 99 are expiring now.
