www.yourhoustonnews.com — U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) reintroduced the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) Reform Act.
The ITIN Reform Act is in response to a highly critical 2012 Tax Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) report on the IRS’ handling of ITIN applications. The IRS provides ITINs to individuals ineligible for Social Security numbers such as illegal immigrants. The ITIN can be used to get refundable tax credits such as the $1,000 refundable child tax credit.
