    Default Certified Indian passport copy for ITIN (How to get it ?)

    Hi folks,

    We'll be shortly moving to CA, and in order to be eligible for tax exemption available on dependents,I'd be applying for ITIN for my child.
    However I came to know that the recent changes in the ITIN application process mandates submitting the passport either in original or in the
    form of a certified copy
    The original passport could then be retained for sometime. As you can now guess, I'd choose not to submit any original
    document. But I also don't know how to procure a certified copy of the passport.

    Do you have any pointers? Can this be obtained from the Indian embassy in the US?

    -thanks

    Hi Santosh,

    Did you get answer to your above question? i also need to apply ITIN for my son but my tax consultant told that even certified copies from consulate are also getting rejected as there does not seem to be any provision of certified copy for passport? i believe only option is to send the original passport with certified mail with return receipt for safety purpose.

    Regards
    Rajesh

    Find a notary nearby and get a certified copy of the data page of passport from them.
    This is my opinion and not legal advice.

    IRS has specifically mentioned that notarized copies are not accepted anymore so going to a notary won't work anymore.

    That's too bad, why do you need it? Because from what I understand ITIN application has to accompany a return and this is not a return filing season.
    This is my opinion and not legal advice.

    I'm in the same boat too. infact, my wife's application for ITIN was rejected since I submitted a notarized copy of the passport. I called IRS and they said the embassy should be able to certify the passport.



    I have not done it yet.
