Individual Tax Payer Id Number and Military Dependent ID

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Quick question guys,

So right now my wife has a dependent ID using a temporary ID number. The military requires either a SSN or an ITIN for a permanent ID.

What confuses be about the ITIN is the instructions for form W-7 want you to have a foreign spouse claimed on your taxes and submit that with the W-7 to get an ITIN. However I was not married to my foreign wife in the previous tax year, and those taxes are already filed as single. What do I have to do to get an ITIN number without having her claimed on my taxes?

Thanks.

This is for DEERS I"m assuming moreso than anything else. I have seen people using the Alien number in lieu of SSN or ITIN but it seems be at the discretion of the personnel office where you're stationed to let you do that or not. I've seen it go both ways, and they've just had to go in and update it once they got their SSN. IDK if that will help you.

Yes this is for DEERS. She is already enrolled, but she has a 90 day temporary ID with a TIN (temporary ID number). According to PSD and various military websites, they require either an SSN or an ITIN, the TIN is just temporary.

I'll be facing this issue here in a few months....

I was going to give them her alien number as I know people who have had success with doing that and getting a permanent ID. It might not work, but the worst they can do is tell me no until I get her social.

I was finally able to get her a regular ID with an alien ID number with help from my command.

I have been down this road..... Filed the w7 with ammended tax return for the year we got married.

As far as the DOD id card. First, I am retired and had my spouse entered into DEERS at the local NOSC office. Im in the US and she is in Philippines.

They, NOSC, said they will not accept the A number or ITIN only a SSN. So they assigned her a generated id number for ID purposes. 2 years after I put her in DEERS I got her appointment at Manila embassy for her ID. They issued her DOD Dependent ID card valid for 4 yrs. The PO at NOSC said when she arrives in US and gets her SSN then we need to bring that in and update her files.

The issue with DEERS TriCare insurance is they want a SSN so they can send the required papers to IRS next year saying she meets the health insurance requirements. I still need to contact DFAS and DEERS regarding this issue. DFAS says they need SSN but we are filing taxes with her ITIN.

My husband is an F-1 visa holder and we are about to submit his AOS packet. However, he is already enrolled in DEERS as my dependent without a SSN. They told us that we have 4 years to get this completed and his current ID expires in September 2019.

Edit: I'm retired (blue ID card)--no longer active duty.
