Individual Income Tax Identification Numbers (ITINs) Expiring--All ITINs that have not been used on a federal income tax return in the last three years or ITINs issued before 2013 with the middle digits of 70, 71, 72, or 80 (9XX-70-XXXX) will expire on December 31, 2017. For more information visit the IRS website. ITINs are issued to taxpayers that do not qualify for a Social Security Number.
Minimum Essential Health Coverage -- The federal government requires you to have health insurance and indicate your status when you file your federal taxes. The Indiana Family and Social Service Administration (FSSA) website has additional information. There are no health insurance reporting requirements for your state of Indiana taxes.
Driver's License Numbers -- As part of a collaborative effort among various states, the IRS and software vendors, you may be asked to provide your driver's license or state-issued identification code number when filing your taxes, to combat stolen identity tax fraud. Providing this information is optional.
