United States – Revised ITIN Policy Eases Burden on Taxpayers 

On June 30, 2014, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) will expire if not used on a federal income tax return for five consecutive years. Prior to this policy change, ITINs issued after January 1, 2013, would have automatically expired after five years even if used properly and regularly by taxpayers. As a result of the announced change, any ITIN, including ITINs issued after January 1, 2013, will remain in effect provided a taxpayer continues to file U.S. tax returns. These taxpayers no longer face mandatory expiration of their ITINs and the need to reapply starting in 2018, which was the case under the old policy.
