At Avant Tax Inc, we can help you correctly prepare ITIN application and certify your documents so you don't lose possession of your passport or other original identity documentation. In order to assist you on ITIN application, we issue COA (Certificate of Accuracy) after reviewing your originals and making the necessary authorized copies. Also, we return all the original documents to you immediately after filling up of the Form W-7 (Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number).
An ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) is a tax processing number issued by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to any person (and their spouse and/or children) who earns money in the United States but is not U.S. Citizen and is not eligible for a Social Security Number.
You need an ITIN for yourself (and for your spouse and children) if you earn money in the U.S. and are required to file a U.S. Tax Return but you are not a U.S. Citizen or you are not eligible for a U.S. Social Security Number, whether you live in the U.S. or not.
A person who needs an ITIN, applies for it usually at the time of filing a valid U.S. Federal Income Tax Return. Any person (and their spouse and/or children) who earns money in the United States but is not U.S. Citizen and is not eligible for a Social Security Number must complete and submit Form W-7 (Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number). This form is sent along with supporting documents to prove your identity and foreign status to the IRS when you file a valid U.S. Federal Income Tax Return (unless exceptions apply).
A Passport is the only stand-alone document that proves both identity and foreign status. If a passport is not provided, then a combination of other current documents (that show a name and photograph and contain expiration dates to support the claim of current foreign status) must be provided.
At least one document submitted must contain a recent photograph (unless dependent is under the age of 14 or a student under the age of 18). If you do not submit a passport, then at least one document must prove Foreign Status and at least one document must prove Identity.

Application under the wrong reason:
The IRS is not going to interview you and determine the correct procedure to apply for. Your ITIN number and preparing the documents on your behalf, this is outside the scope of their service as it requires more time to understand your unique requirement than they are allotted to assist you.
