Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) Application or Renewal Checklist
To renew or apply for an ITIN you will need to download and complete a W-7 Application for IRS ITIN Form and gather identification documentation from the list of acceptable documents below. You can submit your application in any one of three ways:
- Complete your W-7 ITIN application form on your own, gather your documents, and send it to the IRS following these instructions, OR
- Make an appointment at a local Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site to get free help filling out and submitting your W-7 form, OR
- Apply for an ITIN in-person using the services of an IRS-authorized Certifying Acceptance Agent (CAAs). This will prevent you from having to mail your proof of identity and foreign status documents. Important Note: Not all CAAs will offer ITIN application support for free.
