How To Apply For An ITIN
Complete our online ITIN application form, pay the ITIN application fee & we will email you the ITIN application package for your signature;
Sign the ITIN application package & mail it back to us with the Form W-7 supporting documentation; and
Wait 6-8 weeks for the IRS to issue you an ITIN number.
Form W-7 (Application For An ITIN) Supporting Documentation
When you mail the signed ITIN number application back to us, you must include two (2) types of documentation:
1. A fully completed, original & valid US income tax return (Form 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ) or documentation to support an exception to the IRS tax return requirement; and
- We do not complete IRS tax returns to include with the ITIN application form. Clients must mail a fully completed US income tax return with their signed ITIN number application.
- Do NOT mail a copy of your US income tax return to the IRS office listed in the IRS tax return instructions. Once the IRS issues you an ITIN number, the included US income tax return will be forwarded to the correct IRS office for processing.

2. Proof of identity and foreign status documents (see below for more details).
NOTE: An individual with a green card or visa permitting him/her to lawfully obtain employment in the US, must also include the letter of denial issued by the SSA with their ITIN number application.
Proof Of Identity & Foreign Status Documentation Requirements
The IRS requires you to submit documentation to support your identity and foreign status when applying for an ITIN number. The submitted documentation must:
- Contain information consistent with the information inputted into our online ITIN application form (such as your full name, date of birth, place of birth, citizenship, etc.);
- Show your full name to verify your identity and demonstrate that you are not a US citizen;
- Contain a recent photograph (unless the ITIN applicant is under 14 years of age or a student under 18 years of age); and
- Be current and not expired.
NOTE: A current & not expired passport (from a country other than the United States) satisfies all the documentation requirements listed above, and is the preferred choice for ITIN applicants and the IRS.
Proof Of Identity & Foreign Status Documents Accepted For An ITIN Number Application
A current and not expired foreign passport is the only document that is accepted on its own by the IRS when applying for an ITIN number. ITIN applicants unable to submit a current & not expired non-US passport, must submit two (2) or more of the following types of documentation that satisfy all of the previously listed documentation requirements:
- Foreign birth certificate - must be submitted for ITIN applicants under the age of 14 with no foreign passport and is considered current as birth certificates do not have an expiry date;
- Foreign driver's license;
- Foreign military identification card;
- Foreign voter's registration card;
- Medical records - can only be submitted for dependents under the age of 14 or students under the age of 18 & the date of the records must be within twelve (12) months of the date listed on the ITIN application;
- National identification card - must be current and contain a full name, photograph, current address, date of birth and expiration date (such as a Mexican Matricula Card);
- School records - can only be submitted for dependents under the age of 14 or students under the age of 18, & the date of the records must be within twelve (12) months of the date listed on the ITIN number application;
- United States Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") photo identification;
- United States driver's license;
- United States military identification card;
- US state identification card; and
- Visa from the USCIS.
