  10. Obtaining an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) For those individuals who receive income through grants and scholarships from US sources but who are not employed and thus not eligible for a SSN, the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is an alternative to the Social Security Number. Typically, this will apply to Student Athletes, those who receive a stipend, and other US based grant recipients. To qualify to apply for an ITIN immediately, you must: • Not be eligible for a Social Security Number • Receive a grant, scholarship, or stipend from a US source that is subject to tax withholdings • NOTE: Those F-1 and J-1 students who are independently funded or funded by their home government and are not working are eligible for an ITIN under reason “F,” and F-2 and J-2 dependent spouse and children are also eligible for an ITIN under reason “G,” but may only file for the ITIN when filing an end-year tax return with the IRS.

  11. ITIN – Application APPLICATION STEPS • Step 1: Complete ITIN waiting period. Before you can apply for an ITIN, you must have entered the U.S. not less than 10 days ago. • Step 2: Obtain a letter from an International Student Advisor at the Slutzker Center for International Services which verifies that you will not be securing employment in the United States or receiving any type of income from personal services. • Step 3: Apply for the ITIN - Go to the IRS office on the 11th floor, Federal Building, 100 S. Clinton Street, Syracuse, NY. • Take the ITIN Letter from SCIS, your original passport, I-20/DS-2019, visa and I-94 card • You will need to fill out a W-7 Application for an ITIN to submit to the IRS Office: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw7.pdf • W-7 Form Instructions are here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/iw7.pdf • Under the Eligibility Section of the W-7 Form, select both “F” and “H. Other” and enter one of the valid exceptions listed on pages 6-8 of the W-7 Instructions.
