I’m considering getting an ITIN with this agent to be able to open a bank account when I step foot in the US. I have a US LLC and they told me that was a sufficient reason to obtain one.
I was wondering tho: Are there any drawbacks of getting an ITIN? For example:
- Do I need to file taxes every year with possession of an ITIN, even if I don’t owe any?
- If I go to the US on a tourist visa, will I be required to provide that ITIN when I enter the country, and will I be tracked for my time spent in the US? (could facilitate the substantial presence test)
- Any other drawbacks?
