`As a Certifying Acceptance Agent, we help US resident and non-resident aliens, as well as other foreign taxpayers (who are ineligible to obtain a SSN) to apply for an individual taxpayer identification number from the Internal Revenue Service. We offer professional help on behalf of the IRS to individuals ling an ITIN application. We have a formal agreement described under Section 301.6109-1(d)(3)(iv)(A) of the U.S. Treasury Regulations with the IRS. The agreement allows us to assist applicants to apply for an ITIN by reviewing the W-7 form and supporting documentation (US tax return or documentation to support an exception), issuing a certificate to prove the applicant’s identity and foreign status, and forwarding the paperwork to the IRS ITIN office for processing. Once an ITIN is issued, it is forwarded to the applicant.
Acceptance Agent Vs. Certifying Acceptance Agent What is the difference between an IRS Acceptance Agent and an IRS Certifying Acceptance Agent? Both help eligible individuals to apply for an IRS ITIN number. However, a Certifying Acceptance Agent can certify an applicant’s identification documents while an Acceptance Agent cannot. Individuals applying through an Acceptance Agent must either mail their original identification documents or a copy certified by the issuing agency. The IRS may take eight to twelve weeks or more to process and return the documents to you. You will not be able to travel internationally without the documents, such as your passport. In addition, you will not have to worry about the documents getting lost in the mail when you apply through a Certifying Acceptance Agent.
