ITIN system revised by the IRS - 12/12/2012
On 29 November, 2012, the Internal Revenue Service released updated procedures strengthening the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number program. The updated procedures take effect January 1, 2013 and build on interim procedures announced June 22, 2012 and October 2, 2012.
Under the procedures, the IRS will continue to require original documentation or copies that are certified by the issuing agency with the exception of certain applications processed by a Certifying Acceptance Agent like Deloitte Tax LLP.
Notarised copies of documents will no longer be accepted for ITIN applications.
Please find here attached the alert issued by our US colleagues regarding the ITIN procedure.
