To renew an expiring ITIN an individual must complete a Form W-7 (Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number), making sure to check the "Renew an Existing ITIN" checkbox, and submit it to the IRS in one of the following ways:

  • Mail the completed Form W-7 along with the original identification documents or certified copies by the agency that issued them - to the IRS address listed on the form.
  • Use one of many IRS authorized Certified Acceptance Agents or Acceptance Agents around the country.

For renewals, the IRS does not require a tax return to be attached to be submitted for renewal.
