What is the difference between an IRS Certifying Acceptance Agent (CAA) and an Acceptance Agent (AA)?
Both the Acceptance Agent and the IRS Certifying Acceptance Agent (CAA) help qualified people obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), however, there are two main differences.
First, an IRS Certifying Acceptance Agent (CAA) will certify the individual’s identification documents. An Acceptance Agent is not able to certify documents for ITIN number applications. People applying for an ITIN with an Acceptance Agent need to submit their original identification documents and mail them out to the IRS by mail along with the W-7 application.
Secondly, an IRS Certifying Acceptance Agent (CAA) will receive a letter (along with the applicant) when the ITIN is assigned. The Acceptance Agent will not receive the information when the ITIN is assigned.
