Tax id....looking for a help.
Hello!!! My husband filed my tax i.d in U.S more than a year or let say its almost 2 years but until now he did not get my id,, last Feb or March we submit again thier other requirement and tell us to wait 4 to 6 weeks still until now we dont heared from them.
I felt sad because my husband is a simple employee and that refund can really help him or us so much.
Can anyone help me any idea if i can file it myself here in Manila or Cebu my tax i.d.??? how and it take how long.
thank you and hope to hear some good news. G
God Bless everyone.
Babylove, I assume you are referring to an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number), which is used if you are not a US citizen and not holding a US social security card, for your husband to claim you as an exemption on his US income tax return? Following is the US government website with the very strict requirements: Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). Have a look at it and make sure you have followed and are explicit in completing the instructions. Normally, you would send the documentation along with your income tax return.
One of the keys is for you to have a Philippines passport and go to the Department of Foreign Affairs and get a red ribbon certified copy of your passport. Without that, you will probably not be able to obtain an ITIN. If you have had children together, they are eligible for US citizenship and a social security card.
I have just gone through this process for my wife and son and it is rigorous. You can call the US IRS and find out the status, if he has already submitted the required forms. Good luck.

He has hired somebody to file his tax paper and who are the one contacting the IRS people.
I have a two sons but i plan him to be get a refort birth in U.S and also have the adoption of my eldest also thier coz here the attorney is making much money coz they know myforienger.
I felt hopeless with this ITIN.
Hi Again Pato!!! I already talked to my husband and explain. Just want to ask if what are the things i need to prepare before going to DFA to get my red ribbon and how much money im going to pay...? and also do i get certified copy of my birth Certificate in NSO or local registrar?? . My husband said that he already filed both mine and hes income tax return in California, do i need to get it here???.
Since we are elligible for U.S social security ,, it is ok if we will get that when the time we live thier??? does the social security card need to get ITIN??? i'M sorry to ask lots of Question,,,i will be so thankful for ur help, very much needed,,,
Thank you and also thanx that we have a forum like this...thank u DUMAGUETE FORUM...
The following Philippines government website shows the procedure and requirements for applying for Authentication of Passport. This is a global procedure which most countries agreed to and follow, please look it over carefully and simply follow the instructions, it is not painful. Authentication
Bring your passport for ID and a copy of your passport as part of the package.
Your husband should contact the IRS and ask how to proceed. The IRS contact webite is: Contact Your Local IRS Office
Your husband may have to refile his tax return with the W-7 ITIN application and your red ribbon authentication package, that is why he should call the IRS, they are very helpful, best not to try and call the first two working hours.
I am not a tax specialist but I can tell you that you do not need an attorney to process any more of this for you. Btw, US attorneys can be a magnitude more expensive the Philippine attorneys. Everything is on the internet and there are help desks if you don't understand the procedure.
So in summary, I suggest you read the PI consular services website above and your husband contact the IRS to understand the reporting path forward. It is onerous so you must be persistent and keep pushing.
Thanks you for the help.....
