When applying for an ITIN I’m sending a passport w-7 form and a 1040 form but in the 1040 form in the income section 7 they tell me to attach a w-2 form but I’m not a us citizen so I don’t have either an SSN nor an ITIN/EIN so how I’m I suppose to fill out a w-2 form? What do I do, do I just leave it blank? Thanks.
The W-2 form is not something you fill out yourself. You are given a W-2 by your employer, and this form shows how much you were paid and how much tax was withheld from your paycheck. You include a copy of your W-2 with your tax return as “proof” that you have already paid some tax.
If you haven’t yet been an employee of a U.S. company with tax withheld from your paycheck and you haven’t received a W-2 from an employer, then you don’t need to include one with your tax return.
