Final Round of ITIN Expirations & Renewals
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 and those issued before 2013 will expire. This year ITINs with middle digits 88 will expire Dec. 31, 2020. Additionally, ITINs with middle digits 90, 91, 92, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98 or 99, that were assigned before 2013 and have not already been renewed, will also expire at the end of the year.
ITIN renewals and original applications are being processed on a first in, first out basis but the timeline for processing is longer than normal due to the pandemic. It would be advisable to get your clients’ renewal (or original) application in the mail before we reach the coming tax season to prevent additional delays.
ITINs that have expired from years past and have not been renewed can still be renewed.
