I have entered into an agreement whereby the IRS has approved me to act as a Certifying Acceptance Agent pursuant to Federal Treasury Regulation §301.6109-1(d)(3)(iv) of the Income Tax Regulations and Revenue Procedure 96-52.
As a Certifying Acceptance Agent, I am authorized to act on behalf of alien individuals and other foreign persons with respect to obtaining an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). I am authorized to submit Form W-7 to the IRS on behalf of an applicant, without being required to attach supporting documentary evidence, usually your passport (may require based on new regulation effective January 2013). Being a Certifying Acceptance Agent does not authorize me to represent or act as an agent of the IRS.
As a Certifying Acceptance Agent, I can:
· Assist the applicant in completing the IRS Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number.
· Review the required documentation to verify a foreign individual’s status and identify and submit the application on behalf of the foreign individual.
· Certify to the IRS that the foreign individual’s application is complete, accurate and that the documentation provided to me for review is authentic, eliminating the need for the original identifying documents being submitted to the IRS with the application where applicable.
· Receive the individual’s ITIN directly from the IRS and communicate with the IRS on behalf of the foreign individual on matters relating to the issuance of an ITIN.
I offer this service to my clients and foreign nationals to assist and being compliant with IRS withholding regulations. I have successfully obtained ITINs for my clients with a 100% success rate.
If you are in the North Phoenix area, please contact me to see how I can help you with your W-7 application to obtain an ITIN for everyone in your family. ITIN applications are generally filed along with your tax return, so please give me a call so you can file your return as well as your ITIN application.
My name is Krishnamurthi Perinkulam (I go by PK). You will see my name listed in the IRS Certifying Acceptance Agent website here
