Form w7 - My spouse is waiting on her green card, but no SSN.

Hi,

 

I am asking for my tax returns for 2021. I recently got married and we have a filed a for a green card. I tried to apply for a SSN but the office denied it because we are waiting on the green card. Can I submit an ITIN application early and without a 2021 tax return?

No.  If your spouse is eligible for a social security number, never apply for an ITIN or file a tax return with an ITIN.  It is better to wait for the SSN and then file your return, even if it is late.

I didn't have to pay much, I got all of my online orders and shipping handled by Optima Tax Relief reviews and such, they were really helpful in regards to clear out my many problems at hand.
