How Can I Find My Individual Taxpayer Identification Number? – Miriam

By on September 13, 2013

“Dear Jim,

When I was younger my aunt got me an ITIN number from the IRS so that she could claim me as a dependent on her taxes.

Now that I’m an adult is that ITIN number still valid? and if it is how do I find out what the number was? Thank you.

Miriam”

Hi Miriam:

In order to retrieve a lost ITIN (that is Individual Taxpayer Identification Number), you will need to call the IRS ITIN Hotline at 1-800-908-9982. You can answer a series of questions to verify your identity and the IRS will provide you the number.

Keep in mind, if it has been several years since the number has been used, the IRS will deactivate the ITIN and require you to resubmit the Form W-7 and required documentation (original passport) to obtain a new ITIN.

Thanks

Jim
