Applying for a US ITIN

Obtain an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) by filing Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number.

Before Applying for an ITIN

As a non-US person, you may be eligible for a zero or reduced rate of US tax withholding if your income is effectively connected with a US trade or business, or if your country of permanent residence (the country where you claim to be a resident for purposes of that country's income tax) has an income tax treaty with the US.

Look for your country of permanent residence in the Copyrights column under Royalties in the list of tax treaty countries to check the applicable withholding rate. If your country of permanent residence is a part of this list, you may not need a US Tax TIN (ITIN for individuals) to complete the Tax Interview. 

When to apply for an ITIN

If your country of permanent residence does not issue a Tax ID number (foreign Tax ID) or have an active treaty with the US, you may apply for an ITIN by filing Form W-7. The application may take up to eight weeks. Please reference the following resources available in the IRS website for filling W-7.

Please contact the IRS or consult your tax adviser if you need further guidance.
