ITIN Tax Question

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I feel like I have asked a million questions in regards to this topic, I promise my last question. So we went to an IRS location and they certified everything for the ITIN, and I'm getting ready to mail the federal form with the ITIN app. Since the state is seperate how will I send that in since the federal has all the information for the ITIN? Will they be notified that we applied?

when you file state taxes, in place of ssn for your spouse, write : applied for ITIN, and mail it. When you receive your ITIN number, make a copy and mail it to your state tax office. You will receive your refund then

So it is possible to go to an IRS center and just have them verify/certify a foreign passport without having to submit a W-7 and tax return on the same day? Do I need to make copies of the passport for them to certify?

In my experience, the Federal tax return is sent first since that's the one used as the basis for the ITIN application. Then once you have the ITIN you can submit the corresponding state tax return. It's much cleaner this way.

Yes, they will do it for you and send it electronically for you. We thought we had to mail it in but we didn't. We actually forgot to do it, and then the ITIN came in the mail. We were surprised! So if you go to the IRS they do it for you, no need to mail anything in. Just bring everything in with you so they can verify. They also took his application even though his Visa was expiring that day and we still got the ITIN.

Did they issue an ITIN the same day? 

How long did it take to receive your letter in the mail.

They don't issue ITINs on the same day. I filled ITINs at the IRS taxpayer assistance center with our joint tax return.

 

I was given a letter to expect it in 10-12 weeks at my mailing address. If it was outside of peak season (Jan to Apr), they said it would be roughly 7-9 weeks.

When I spoke with my accountant, he told me my state taxes and FBAR are automatically extended. I'm not sure if it is because I'm filing for ITIN but I was surprised I didn't need to fill out some forms. I asked him again whether I needed to fill some form for the extension and he replied that it was automatic so I plan to file after we get my ITIN.

I received my ITIN about 4 weeks after mailing it in, and my refund about 4 weeks later. Total of about 8 weeks all together. I filed on 02/4/19.

That would be my dream. I would like the ITIN ASAP too.

 

That was the time frame the letter the IRS gave me when I submtited the W7 on 4/9/19.

IMO I think the time frame they gave you was quite long, and I think you will get it sooner. I think they play is safe by giving you a longer tine frame, otherwise people would be calling and complaining about it taking longer than the time frame.

That would one of the greatest news I've had since starting this CR1 process.

 

Thanks for optimism!

Thanks for the information. Next time my wife visits we'll go to an IRS service center and apply.  

In San Diego, we had to book an appointment in advance for IRS taxpayer assistance center. So plan ahead of time.

 

The other added benefit is that they can certify your ID with your passport then and there and give it back to you right away.

 

I called 2-3 weeks before to get an appointment, but it was also in the peak month of April.

Just to follow up. I submitted my ITIN application on April 9, 2019 and received it yesterday May 20.

 

In total, it took 6 weeks, much faster than there quoted 10-12 weeks.

 

If only USCIS will surprise me like this...😜
