    Default Filing Taxes and Using an ITIN Based on Current Status

    I am a US citizen and currently petitioning for my husband. He entered with F-1 status, which is currently expired. Now that I'm trying to file my taxes this year, I realize that I must file as married, either filing separately or jointly. He was issued a # at the school he was attending, but that number is 'invalid' when I have tried to use it as his SS# while e-filing. He has no income to report, but I am forced to add his information if I file this year, which I must. Do we have to apply for an ITIN for him in order for me to file this year? Does he meet 'nonresident alien' status?

    He was issued what type of number and why is it "invalid"? Is it a SSN?

    Default Re: Filing Taxes and Using an ITIN Based on Current Status

    It's a 9-digit number, like XXX-XX-XXX, but begins with 999. He was only supposed to use it at school if he were employed there. He didn't work on campus or off. I tried using it as a ssn on the tax forms, since on was required, and it stated that it was invalid. From what I've read 999-numbers are only temporary ssn's, and are generally considered invalid. I'm planning to apply for an extension this year and file once my husband receives a SSN. Is that what you recommend?
