how to get around a Social Security Number

No social security number? No problem!
— reported by

People working in the U.S. have to file tax returns, and most use a Social Security number to identify themselves. But not all people have or qualify for Social Security numbers, so how do they file? They use an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) instead.An ITIN is a 9-digit number issued by the IRS to anyone who doesn’t have or qualify for a Social Security number and who earns income in the U.S. The number can only be used for tax purposes and doesn’t affect immigration status or authorize employment in America.
