An ITIN, also known as Taxpayer Identification Number, is a tax processing number. The ITIN can only be issued through a Certifying Acceptance Agent or the IRS. It is issued irrespective of migration status because both local and non-resident aliens may have a U.S reporting or filing requirement under the Internal Revenue Code. This nine-digit number is only available to people who are obliged to have a taxpayer identification number for tax purposes, but who don’t have or not qualified to get a SSN or Social Security Number from the Social Security Administration or SSA.
