Applicants must be at least 18 years old. Parents/guardians may request authorization on behalf of a minor. If you need your original documents within 14 weeks of submitting your ITIN application, you can apply in person at an IRS or CAA Taxpayer Assistance Center. You can also submit certified copies of the issuing organization`s documents instead of the original documents. The original documents you submit will be returned to you at the mailing address indicated on your Form W-7. You do not need to present a return envelope. Applicants can include a prepaid express mail or courier envelope to return their documents more quickly. The IRS will then return the documents in the envelope provided by the applicant. If your original documents are not returned within 14 weeks, you can call the IRS at 800-908-9982 (U.S. only) or internationally at 267-941-1000 (not a toll-free number). If you want to file a tax return, but are unable to obtain a valid Social Security number, you must complete IRS Form W-7, „Application for an IRS Individual Tax Identification Number.” The Form W-7 must be submitted to the IRS along with a completed tax return and documents to verify identity and alien status.

You need original documents or certified true copies from the issuing bodies. The instructions for Form W-7 describe the eligible documents. After approving the ITIN request, the IRS processes the tax return and sends a letter to the taxpayer or certified agent containing the ITIN number(s) for subsequent tax returns. You can apply for an ITIN at any time of the year if you have a registration or reporting obligation. At a minimum, you must complete Form W-7 if you are ready to file your federal income tax return before the required return due date. If the tax return you file with Form W-7 is filed after the tax return due date, you may have to pay interest and/or penalties.
