ITINS Set to Expire

ITINS Set to Expire in 2019; IRS Says Renew Early to Prevent Refund Delays Nearly 2 million Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) are set to expire at the end of 2019 as the Internal Revenue Service continues to urge affected taxpayers to submit their renewal applications early to avoid refund delays next year. “We urge taxpayers with expiring ITINs to take action and renew the number as soon as possible. Renewing before the end of the year will avoid unnecessary delays related to their refunds,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “To help with this process, the IRS is sharing this material in multiple languages. We encourage partner groups to share this important information to reach as many people with ITINs as possible.” Under the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, ITINs that have not been used on a federal tax return at least once in the last three consecutive years will expire December 31, 2019. In addition, ITINs with middle digits 83, 84, 85, 86 or 87 that have not already been renewed will also expire at the end of the year. These affected taxpayers who expect to file a tax return in 2020 must submit a renewal application … Read More

Here are some things taxpayers should know about withholding and why checking it is important: Taxpayers should check their withholding as early in the year as possible.

Taxpayers should also check their withholding when life changes occur. These changes include things like: Marriage or divorce Birth or adoption of a child Purchase of a home Retirement Chapter 11 bankruptcy New job or loss of job Some taxable income is not subject to withholding. People with this income who also have income from a job may want to adjust the amount of tax their employer withholds from their paycheck.
