The Social Security Number Can Indicate A Foreign Person… If You Have Proof

Get the IRS to change your status to “foreign person” ie. not a US citizen or resident alien.

“26 CFR 301.6109-1 – Identifying numbers.

(g) Special rules for taxpayer identifying numbers issued to foreign persons

(1) General rule

(i) Social security number. A social security number is generally identified in the records and database of the Internal Revenue Service as a number belonging to a U.S. citizen or resident alien individual. A person may establish a different status for the number by providing proof of foreign status with the Internal Revenue Service under such procedures as the Internal Revenue Service shall prescribe, including the use of a form as the Internal Revenue Service may specify. Upon accepting an individual as a nonresident alien individual, the Internal Revenue Service will assign this status to the individual’s social security number.”



If one is successful at acquiring a USA passport as a non-citizen national, one can write to request an authenticated copy of the application and all paperwork submitted with it. That should serve as proof of foreign status.

  1. One can also have your Birth Certificate authenticated by the state Sec. of State then again by the U.S. Sec. of State, having in in your possession what legally is equal to the Birth record held by the state. By authenticated instead of apostilled, under Hague treaty; the state uses their original state seal that is associated with the states before the Federal take-over STATE OF STATE NAME corporate franchise state. The official seal on mine says: Connecticut Republic, Not State of Connecticut. Giving me a Nationality of Connecticuter if I claim it.

  2. Here is a link to the Nationalities of “state citizenship” that the Federal government doesn’t want U.S. citizens to know is still available to them. It is not in the same location as Nationality relating to foreign counties. However, the word nationality must have the same meaning in both sections.
    What is the name of the Nationality that is surrendered when a U.S. citizen expatriates? Is it American National? I would think that applies to constitutional “Citizens of the United States” from a state and not to a statutory federal “citizen of the United States”. Does Washington District of Columbia have a Nationality name?
