HOW DO I file?

How to file if you’re undocumented

If you don’t have a Social Security number, you will need an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) to file your taxes.

Keep in mind: If you’re claiming any dependents on your taxes, they will need a Social Security number or an ITIN, too.

To get an ITIN you need to prove your identity to someone the IRS trusts.

  • You can verify your identity and apply for an ITIN with a Certified Acceptance Agent.

    // We recommend a trusted Miami community organization called Branches. They're happy to help if you give them a call at (786) 650-2007.

    // Here's a full list of Certified Acceptance Agents in Florida.
  • Another option is to mail this form, along with your original passport or other original proof of identity document, but it's usually easier to contact a Certified Acceptance Agent.
