SDG Accountant can help you obtain a U.S. Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (“ITIN”) or renew your ITIN, by completing your ITIN application in 5 Business Days or less. We also offer a money-back guarantee if your ITIN application is not successful

We are one of the only IRS Certifying Acceptance Agents (“CAA”) in Canada, TRAINED and AUTHORIZED BY THE IRS to assist non-U.S. citizens who don’t have a Social Security Number (“SSN”) to get their ITIN.

Years ago, the IRS would accept returns without ITIN, but not anymore – anything submitted without an SSN or ITIN will generally get rejected by the IRS processing center. While the task sounds straightforward, the ITIN process can get complex and time-consuming.

At SDG we value transparency and fair pricing with no hidden fees, and all additional tax or advisory services are optional. Click on the link to start your ITIN application:

Why Do You Need an ITIN?

Generally, individual U.S. taxpayers use an SSN as their tax identification number for all U.S. tax matters. However, the SSN is generally only available to U.S. citizens, green card holders, and people authorized to work in the U.S.

Non-U.S. citizens need to get an ITIN to open a U.S. Bank Account, other payment accounts such as PayPal without an SSN, and more:

  1. ITINs are generally required for U.S. federal tax reporting purposes.
  2. An ITIN allows you to file your taxes and claim dependents you support in the U.S., Mexico or Canada.
  3. An ITIN gets issued regardless of your immigration or visa status in the U.S. In fact, someone who has never entered the United States may well have an ITIN or require one.
  4. An ITIN allows you to get a refund from your income withheld by the IRS, if you qualify.
  5. An ITIN may even allow you to apply for a loan. 

Important! Even if you have an ITIN you may need to get a new one!

Under the Protecting Americans From Tax Hikes (“PATH”) Act enacted in December 2015, taxpayers who have not used their ITINs on a tax return in the last three years or those with certain middle digits in the ITIN number (78 or 79) must renew their ITIN before filing a 2016 U.S. federal tax return. The renewal period began on October 1, 2016.

The Advantages of Using SDG Accountant for ITIN Applications

Applying for an ITIN on your own can be a frustrating and time-consuming process. And if your application is rejected after waiting for weeks for a reply, which isn’t uncommon, you’ll have to start from scratch and re-apply. That doesn’t sound fun, does it?

ITIN applications are made by filing with the IRS Form W-7, Application for IRS ITIN. When you work with SDG Accountant, we’ll ensure your application is processed quickly by the IRS by:

  • Preparing and submitting Form W-7, ensuring the application is accurate and complete, minimizing the risk of rejection by the IRS
  • Authenticating your identity and foreign status documents and submitting a Certificate of Accuracy.
  • We make sure the application is properly filed.
  • Electronically submit your application, potentially expediting the process compared to mailing documents yourself

We also answer your questions, address any complications, and guide you through the entire ITIN application process.


Only Certified Acceptance Agents are authorized by the IRS to authenticate your original identity and foreign status documents. Your ITIN application will be rejected if these documents are certified by any other agents, such as a Commissioner of Oaths, a Notary Public, or a lawyer.

What is an IRS Certified Acceptance Agent?

Applying for an ITIN can be complex, especially for Canadians navigating U.S. tax regulations. That’s where a Canadian CAA comes in!

A CAA is a tax professional authorized by the IRS to assist individuals who don’t qualify for an SSN in obtaining ITIN. These numbers are essential for filing U.S. tax returns and meeting other IRS reporting requirements.

At SDG Accountants, our team of CAA specialists boasts the following qualifications:
  • Advanced IRS Training: We exceed the IRS’s rigorous education standards, ensuring expert guidance throughout your ITIN application process.
  • Thorough Background Checks and Tax Compliance: We undergo strict background checks and maintain tax compliance for your peace of mind.

Forensic Document Expertise: Our CAAs possess the skills to verify the authenticity of your identification documents, eliminating delays and ensuring a smooth application process.
