An ITIN is an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. It is used for tax filing purposes only. It allows a taxpayer to claim the tax benefits of being married and having children or other dependents.
he ITIN application process must be submitted to the IRS along with a federal tax file. If the application is for a spouse, we will need a copy of your spouse’s passport (and US visa if applicable) signed & dated by your spouse.
Even if your spouse is not, or was not, present in the US during the tax year you are still eligible to apply for an ITIN and file your tax return as Married Filing Jointly.
Some individuals may be required to submit original passports or certified copies of passports. A certified copy must be certified and attested true by the government agency that issued the original passport.

The processing period at Indy Tax Service varies per individual. A tax preparer may request documentation from a client before tax preparation can begin.
Typically, if all required documentation is submitted and all interview questions answered, the tax file can be completed the same day.
Once the tax return is completed and submitted, the IRS will typically have the return processed in 2-3 weeks if submitted electronically.
Fees are dependent upon the amount of time put into preparing a tax return, as well as the degree of complexity of the tax return.
The best way is to request a copy from your employer’s HR department.
Within 24 hours of submitting your documents you should be contacted by a tax preparer by email or phone.
The referral bonus differs per client and is based upon the number of clients you refer to Indy Tax Service who file with us.
The referral bonus can be difficult to calculate and determine. It can take a few months after tax season has ended before we begin issuing bonuses.
Do not be frightened! Please forward a scanned copy of that letter to your tax preparer via email. Your tax preparer will review the letter and your case to determine the best possible course of action.
