IRS begins issuing notices to taxpayers whose ITINs will expire in 2017

The IRS began mailing letters this month to more than 1 million taxpayers with expiring Individual Taxitinpayer Identification Numbers and urges recipients to renew them as quickly as possible to avoid tax refund and processing delays. ITINs with middle digits 70, 71, 72 or 80 are set to expire at the end of 2017. The notice being mailed — CP-48 Notices, You must renew your Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) tofile your U.S. tax return — explains the steps taxpayers need to take to renew the ITIN if it will be included on a U.S. tax return filed in 2018. The notices will be issued over a five-week period beginning in early August. Taxpayers who receive the notice but have acted to renew their ITIN do not need to take further steps unless another family member is affected. (IRS News Release, IR-2017-128, Aug. 8, 2017.)
