IRS: ITINs Will Expire If Not Used on Tax Returns for Five Consecutive Years

On June 3o, 2014, the IRS, in IR-2014-76, announced that Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (“ITINs”) will expire if not used on a federal income tax return for five consecutive years, but that the IRS will not begin deactivating ITINs until 2016.  Thus, anyone with a valid ITIN may still use the ITIN to file a valid return during the upcoming tax-filing season.   This policy applies to any ITIN, regardless of when it was issued.
