Thank for choosing Turbo tax and being a loyal customer.

I do apologize but to claim your wife on your taxes, she must have either one of these:

  • Social Security number (SSN)
  • Individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN)
If your spouse does not have a SSN, or an ITIN number then you can file an extension until your spouse can obtain a SSN or ITIN.

Thanks. I got following information last time. Is it valid?

[If you do not yet have an ITIN, you can include the application in your tax filing. Follow these steps to apply for an ITIN and file your tax return:]

1. Complete IRS Form W-7.

2. Complete your federal and state tax returns using the number 999-88-9999 in place of a Social Security Number.

3. Print the tax returns and cross off the 999-88-9999 from the SSN field. Do not attempt to e-file your return.

4. Write "Applying for ITIN; Application attached" next to the SSN field.

5. Mail the signed federal return, the completed Form W-7, and all documentation required by the Form W-7 Instructions to the address specified in the Form W-7 Instructions. (Alternatively, you may choose to take all this information in-person to a local IRS office for processing.)

6. If you need to file a state tax return: Mail the signed state return and a copy of Form W-7 to your state's regular filing address.
