How To Get ITIN for Spouse

Hey, so today we’re going to be talking about how to get ITIN for your spouse.

Hey everyone, this is Sina Bonabi from EIN Express. I’m an IRS certified acceptance agent and I’m both trained and authorized by the IRS to help non-US citizens all over the world, just like you, to successfully get their EINs and ITINs for them.

We’ve assisted over 2,240 non-US citizens to get their EINs and ITINs, and I’d love to help you get yours as well too.

So today we’re going to be talking about how to get an ITIN for your spouse.

Great question, another common one.

Tax Purposes For Non-US Citizen Spouse

I’m looking forward to addressing it. Anytime I get these cases where a client comes to us who are trying to get their ITIN for their spouse, we first break it down.

We first see, okay, is this client trying to claim their spouse who is a non-US citizen on their taxes?

If that’s the case, usually it’s a US citizen client or a client who’s a US resident alien for tax purposes, and they are doing a married filing jointly return, and they’re claiming they’re non-US citizen spouse on their tax or they want to.

And so we go the tax return route for them to help get the ITIN for the spouse, where we properly complete their taxes for them, we properly complete their ITIN application for them, we get all the identification documentation we need, and we make sure everything is done by the book.

We help with the ITIN for the spouse and also help properly file the client’s tax turn as well, too, with the IRS.

So that’s one route.

If the client is not looking to claim their spouse on their taxes, which happens often too, then we look at the spouse.

We approach the spouse as an individual case where we see, okay, are they trying to file their taxes, where it’s going to be married filing separately, in which case we help the client get their taxes done properly, ITIN application done properly, and go that route.

Or we see if the spouse is not trying to do their taxes and they just want to do a non-tax return case.

Then we go into the exception categories and we start exploring that for the spouse. And that happens sometimes too.

We use different exception categories depending on what type of case the spouse has. Sometimes they have a business. We use our business.

Sometimes they’re receiving royalties or rental income or dividends or pensions or annuities or gambling.

There are so many different types of things. Sometimes they own properties or they have mortgage loans. There are a plethora of different cases I can go more into for the spouse that we’ve dealt with in the past on how we’ve gotten their ITINs for them too.

So it just depends. We always go step-by-step; we break it down.

First, we want to see if the client is looking to claim the spouse on their taxes, we go that route. If not, then we approach the spouse’s own individual tax return case if possible, and we go that route.

If not, then we try and go outside of a tax return case and try to do non-tax return routes for the spouse, and then proceed forward accordingly.

So that’s how we get ITINs for spouses. I hope this response was informative. I hope it was helpful. There’s a lot more that I could go into, but it’s also very much done on a case-by-case basis.

So hopefully this answer helped. If this case applies to any of you out there, I would love to help get the ITIN for you. Please just send us an email, contact me, and I’d love to help.
