What is an ITIN?
Individual tax payer identification number (ITIN) is a number for processing your federal income tax returns.

In order to pay the taxes, you need an ITIN, which will be issued to you regardless of your immigration status. You need to apply for your tax ID number only if you have a tax filing requirement. To file taxes we use our tax and accounting division called Freedomtax Accounting.
