(1) Maryland – If the business cannot provide an ITIN for an owner or officer, the business must provide a notarized affidavit for the responsible party.

(2) Missouri – Although it is technically possible to register for a permit without an SSN/ITIN, the TaxValet team has issues filing returns for these businesses so we currently do not support registration.

(3) Texas may require a bond be paid if the business is foreign and has no ITIN or SSN.
