This week! Learn about ITINs and how to get one – 2/15 at 6 pm ET

For those without a Social Security number, ITINs (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) are crucial to unlocking many benefits for undocumented folks.

Why do we encourage you to get an ITIN? ITINs can be used to:

  • File and pay taxes
  • Open a bank account
  • Obtain a home mortgage
  • Secure a driver’s license (in select states)
  • Apply for an Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Pursue entrepreneurial careers such as independent contracting, freelancing, and/or starting a business
  • Apply and participate in various paid internship and fellowship programs that are open to SSN and ITIN holders. (Example inclusive programs include Teach for America’s Ignite Fellowships, Dream Summer Fellowships, and Parker Dewey Micro-Internships.)

Join us this week for the first of two sessions called “ITINs Open Doors – How Do I Get One?” where we’ll discuss what ITINs are, help you figure out if you already have one, and guide you through the steps to apply. Got any burning ITIN questions? Feel free to bring them!

Thursday Feb 15th (also on our calendar here)

3:00 pm – 4:00 pm PT / 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm ET (adjust for your time zone)
