Important Reminders

Social security number for dependents. You must list either the social security number (SSN), individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), or adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN) of every person for whom you claim an exemption.

If you do not list the dependent's SSN, ITIN, or ATIN, the exemption may be disallowed. See Social Security Numbers for Dependents, later.

Election to report child's unearned income on parent's return. You may be able to include your child's interest and dividend income on your tax return by using Form 8814, Parents' Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends. If you choose to do this, your child will not have to file a return.

Photographs of missing children. The Internal Revenue Service is a proud partner with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Photographs of missing children selected by the Center may appear in this publication on pages that would otherwise be blank. You can help bring these children home by looking at the photographs and calling 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) if you recognize a child.
