    You must renew your Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to file your U.S. tax return.

    Why is he IRS contacting you

    You or someone listed on your return has an ITIN with middle numbers 78 or 79 and the ITIN will expire on January 1, 2017 (for example, 9NN-78-NNNN).

    Who needs to renew an ITIN?

    If you will file a U.S. tax return listing an ITIN with a middle digit of 78 or 79 for yourself, your spouse, or any dependent, you must renew the ITIN.

    Who does not need to renew an ITIN?

    You don’t need to renew the ITIN if:

    1. You won’t use the ITIN with a middle digit of 78 or 79 on a U.S. tax return.
    2. The ITINs are only used on information returns (such as 1099-series forms) filed with the IRS by third party payers.
    3. The owner of the ITIN with the middle digits of 78 or 79 became a U.S. citizen or legal resident alien and now has a social security number.
    What you need to do to renew an ITIN
    1. Submit the revised version of Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, to the address found in the Form W-7 instructions. The revised version of this form will be available September 2016.
    2. Include a copy of your Letter 5821 with your application.

    IRS will begin accepting renewal applications beginning October 1, 2016. We’ll return your identification documents within 60 days. Send your application to us early to avoid delays in processing your next tax return.

    You don’t need to attach a tax return to your renewal application if you submit the application before you’re ready to file your return.
