ITIN for K-2: How to fill out the W-7

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Malaysia

Thanks in advance to all who read this and maybe offer some advice!

My fiance came about a month ago on a K-1 visa and we are going to get married this month and start the AOS process as soon as we're married. She applied for and received her SSN without any problems. Her kids are K-2 and I'm trying to get an ITIN for them. The insurance company at my work is requiring they have this (or a SSN) to enroll them.

I downloaded the W-7 form and am not exactly sure how to properly fill it out.

Under "Reason you are submitting Form W-7" I think I should mark "g - Dependent/spouse of a nonresident alien holding a U. S. visa". Is this correct?

I am not filing a tax return for another year so I can't include a tax return as a reason I need the ITIN. I am trying to open up a bank account for the K-2 holders and I have asked my bank to submit a document declaring a need for an ITIN, but they haven't gotten me an answer yet. I must meet one of the exceptions as to why I'm not filing a tax return with the W-7.

Does anyone have any advice on how to get an ITIN for my new kids?

Thanks again!

I tried to get an ITN for my son when I first came.

You cannot get one unless you're filing a tax return.
