Corvus is always available to respond to questions, which is important to people who aren't used to dealing with American taxes. They always answer their phones, rather than directing clients to a call center.

TIN Applications

Non-Americans who earn an income, own property, have investments or run a business in America are usually required to have an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) or an Employer Identification Number (EIN) to:

When it was necessary we gained experience as a Certified Acceptance Agent of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in verifying identification for ITINs or EINs and submit applications on behalf of non-American individuals and companies. Since the most recent changes in policy in most cases there is no need to be a Certified Agent. We don’t issue tax numbers ourselves; only the IRS has that capability.

Applying for an ITIN
If you’re an individual and would like Corvus to submit your ITIN application, we’ll need the following information:

There is no need for you to come to our office in person as verification has to be done by the issuing agency. In general this means it has to be done by City Hall or an Embassy. The verified copy must be sent to us before we can proceed with the application.

Officially, it takes six to eight weeks for the IRS to process ITIN applications. However, we’ve found that it often takes up to 10 weeks to reach our offices in the Netherlands. We have no influence over the speed with which the IRS handles your application or assigns a number, so we suggest that you apply well in advance of when you’ll need the ITIN.

Applying for an EIN
If you’re a legal entity applying for an EIN, we’ll need the following information:

Unlike the ITIN, an EIN can be expedited. Once we’ve received your signed application form for an EIN, we can usually acquire a number from the IRS within two days.

Rates
Our rates for applying for an American tax number depend on the type of application and, in the case of an EIN, the speed with which the number is required. Please visit the Rates section of this website for more information.
