Whether you are applying for a new Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) or an ITIN renewal, we can help you avoid the time-consuming and confusing process of applying on your own.
If you apply on your own, you must submit the application on IRS Form W-7 along with supporting documents proving your identity and foreign (Canadian) status. You can either mail your application and supporting documents (typically your passport) to the IRS, or visit an IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center. Both options take time and you run the risk of rejection if the application isn’t properly done.
If you’re considering applying by mail, your passport will be returned to you via mail, taking up to 60 days or more to get it back in your hands. One of the greatest benefits of working with a Certified Acceptance Agent is the accelerated process.
