Do you need an ITIN?
If you do not have a U.S. Social Security number (SSN), but you are required to file a US federal income tax return to be claimed as a spouse or dependent or to provide a tax identification number for other income tax purposes, you will need an ITIN. You must have a valid filing requirement to get an ITIN.
How do you get one?
To obtain an ITIN, applicants must complete Form W-7 and provide original supporting documents such as a valid passport. The ITIN is used to file tax returns and other tax-related documents with the IRS.
Applying without Certified Acceptance Agent
The Non-CAA procedure for obtaining an ITIN requires applicants to submit original documents or “certified” copies of the documents to the IRS. A certified document is one that the original issuing agency provides and certifies as an exact copy of the original document. The documents must be mailed to the IRS along with the completed Form W-7. The processing time for a non-CAA application can take up to 7 weeks or more.
Applying with Certified Acceptance Agent
If you need to obtain an ITIN, consider working with us as your Certified Acceptance Agent (CAA). A CAA is authorized by the IRS to assist with the ITIN application process and can help ensure your application is processed accurately and efficiently. Most importantly we will verify and review your original documents and you will not have to mail the originals with your application.
