Non-Citizen Tax Filing Services in Alexandria

Non-citizens are required to file income taxes with the IRS under a variety of circumstances. These requirements may even apply if you have no actual income from U.S. sources. In order to file your taxes, you will need an ITIN.  Barbara O’Leary is specially certified to assist non-citizens in obtaining ITINS so they can efficiently file any necessary taxes.

What are ITINs?

An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service. It is a nine-digit number that always begins with the number 9. ITINs are used for federal tax reporting purposes by individuals who must file U.S. tax returns, but do not otherwise qualify for a Social Security number. They are issued to both resident and non-resident foreign nationals and dependents or spouses of a US citizen/resident alien or of a nonresident alien visa holder who have federal tax obligations, regardless of immigration status.

What ITINs are NOT:

  • ITINs are not valid for identification purposes outside the U.S. tax system
  • ITINs are not valid for work purposes
  • If you are eligible for a Social Security number, you cannot apply for an ITIN
