ITIN -- W-7 procedure...

Okay, so I'm figuring out the ITIN procedure via the w-7 form from the IRS.

I know that there are a list of selected agents in Toronto and that I have to go in with the completed w-7 form

my passport and a copy of my passport for them to verify. And that this is what the charge is for, right?

I have been quoted from 100$ up to 500$... what did you all pay?

i was told by one agent that I could do it at the American Consolate office in Toronto but upon looking at their website,

they say that they no longer do this anymore. Is this true? Did I misread the website?

Should I be paying for this service? If so... how much?

Your help is appreciated.

Using an acceptance agent is completely optional. For more information, please read the attached pamphlet from the IRS

Hey zyggy!

Once again, you're a wealth of information...

So, I don't have to go to an acceptance agent?? We can do it all ourselves? Doesn't my passport have to be notorized? I was told I could do that at the US consolate in Toronto but from what I can tell, it looks like they no longer do this and suggest we go t hrough an agent.

I'll have a look at the PDF link you sent me and see if it makes it any clearer for me.

Thanks again, you're very helpful with this stuff.

I realize too, that i can send in my passport or birth certificate instead of actually having them notarized too, is one better than the other? I'm thinking I'd be happier sending them my Birth certificate.

If anyone knows for sure, let me know.

Much appreciated...
