How to Get an ITIN For Your Dependent After They Got Rejected from the IRS?

Okay, so today we’re going to be talking about a very trending topic and it’s loaded with technical content, so I’m excited to talk about it. It is how to get an ITIN for your dependent that’s been denied, their application has been rejected by the IRS.

So especially for 2021, we’ve been getting a lot of clients coming to us who’ve stated that they’ve filed their taxes and applied for an ITIN for their dependent through an IRS tax center or their CPA or attorney or H&R Block or other companies. They’re coming to us and saying, “My dependent’s ITIN application was rejected and I didn’t get that full refund amount that I was expecting because of it. Why’d this happen?”

It’s a great question and I want to separate my answer into two parts to explain why their applications are being rejected.


Reason Why They Get Rejected with the IRS

The reason why is because the IRS has put in a new rule change starting from 2021 and beyond, so let me go ahead and clear it up for you guys.

So for the tax year 2018 and earlier, if you’re trying to claim on your tax return, a non-US citizen dependent and they need an ITIN, for the ITIN application for a dependent in addition to providing the standard identification documentation requirement, you also need to provide proof of stamp date of entry for that dependent on the ITIN application, and that’s usually with a stamp on the passport or the visa or providing a border crossing card, etc.

The exception to having to provide that proof of stamp date of entry into the U.S. for the dependent on the ITIN application is if that dependent is from Canada or Mexico or is dependent on military personnel overseas.

If you’re not in one of those three categories then if you’re trying to be claimed as a dependent on someone’s tax return and you need to get the ITIN, to get the ITIN you have to show proof of stamp date of entry.

Now that rule has been changed.

The IRS went ahead and changed that so for tax returns for 2018 and beyond, if you are trying to claim a non-US citizen as a dependent on your tax return and get an ITIN for them, as I said before, in addition to providing the identification documentation for the ITIN application, you also need to show proof of stamp date of entry with a stamp on the passport, visa, or border crossing card, etc.

But now that rule for 2018 beyond, that rule applies to everybody so it doesn’t even matter if you’re from Mexico, Canada, or a dependent of military personnel overseas.

Every single dependent, regardless of what country they’re from, has to now show that proof of stamp date of entry into the US. and that’s for 2021 tax returns and beyond. So we’ve been getting a lot of clients coming to us and saying, “My dependent credit was denied because of this and I didn’t get the refund amount that I thought I was going to get.”

So now we’ve been able to work with them on successfully getting the ITINs for their dependents and working with them and the IRS to get that difference in refund amount back to them from the IRS.

It’s something that I’m really happy that we’ve been able to help out with and I’m seeing a lot of the cases of it, especially in 2021, because of that new rule change.

A lot of CPAs, attorneys aren’t aware of it, other companies, they’re kind of looking over that fact and, I’ve mentioned in other videos, IRS tax centers don’t do a quality control check on your ITIN applications.

You’re just simply giving it to them and they’re just dumping you on a stack that is applying. There’s no quality control check, so these things get bypassed a lot.

But if you feel like you fall into a situation and you need to get an ITIN for your dependent, please don’t hesitate. Contact us, call or e-mail. My team and I would love to help you get an ITIN for your dependent and also claim that difference in refund amount back from the IRS to help you out.
