ITIN Registration Services

Need a U.S. ITIN?  We are a Certified Acceptance Agent and can assist you with obtaining a U.S. ITIN.

What is an ITIN?

An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS issues ITINs to individuals who are required to have a U.S. taxpayer identification number but who do not have, and are not eligible to obtain, a Social Security number (SSN) from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

What is an ITIN used for?

IRS issues ITINs to help individuals comply with the U.S. tax laws, and to provide a means to efficiently process and account for tax returns and payments for those not eligible for Social Security numbers. They are issued regardless of immigration status, because both resident and nonresident aliens may have a U.S. filing or reporting requirement under the Internal Revenue Code. ITINs do not serve any purpose other than federal tax reporting.

An ITIN does not:
  • Authorize work in the U.S.
  • Provide eligibility for Social Security benefits
  • Qualify a dependent for Earned Income Tax Credit Purposes

Do I need an ITIN?

Does the following apply to you?
  1. You do not have an SSN and are not eligible to obtain one, and
  2. You have a requirement to furnish a federal tax identification number or file a federal tax return, and
  3. You are in one of the following categories:
    • Nonresident alien who is required to file a U.S. tax return
    • U.S. resident alien who is (based on days present in the United States) filing a U.S. tax return
    • Dependent or spouse of a U.S. citizen/resident alien
    • Dependent or spouse of a nonresident alien visa holder
    • Nonresident alien claiming a tax treaty benefit
    • Nonresident alien student, professor or researcher filing a U.S. tax return or claiming an exception
If so, then you must apply for an ITIN.  

Applying for an ITIN

If you determine you do need an ITIN, we can help.  We are an IRS Certified Acceptance Agent.

Why choose a Certified Acceptance Agent?  A Certified Acceptance Agent:
  • Is a person or an entity (business or organization) authorized to assist individuals and other foreign persons that need a TIN and has a written agreement with the IRS for this purpose.
  • Facilitates the application process by reviewing the necessary documents, authenticating the identity of the applicants and forwarding the completed forms to IRS.
  • Returns the documentation immediately to the individual after reviewing its authenticity. Meaning, the CAA will save an Individual from mailing original documents to the IRS.
  • May receive applications for an ITIN from Individuals residing outside of the U.S.
  • May review and verify original documentation or a certified copy from the issuing agency through face-to-face or video electronic interview (SKYPE).
  • May authenticate passports and birth certificates for dependents.
  • A CAA submits Form W-7 together with Form W-7(COA) Certificate of Accuracy for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (this form is only used by IRS Certified Acceptance Agents when submitting Form W-7)
The main reason to work with a Certified Acceptance Agent, is you do not have to mail your original Passport or other identification documents to the IRS.  We certify the documents during our video interview with you.

 Do I need to renew my ITIN?

If you need to file a tax return in 2020 and your ITIN has expired or will expire before you file in 2020, IRS recommends you submit your renewal application now to prevent potential delays in the processing of your return.  If you use an expired ITIN on a U.S. tax return, it will be processed and treated as timely filed, but without any exemptions and/or credits claimed and no refund will be paid at that time.  You will receive a notice explaining the delay in any refund and that the ITIN has expired.
