W-7 application rejected

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Update on my w-7 status. Well, I contacted the ITIN department on March 19th, because i had not heard anything concerning my application. Now, mind you I had been calling every week to check up on my status, but they kept telling me it wasn't in the system and takes 6-8 weeks. On the 19th, a gentleman actually took the time to look and discovered my W-7 for my wife was rejected on feb 21. I had mailed it on Feb 8. He said that a letter was sent to me on the 27, but I told him I never received it and nobody there told me anything. Come to find out it was rejected because the acceptance agent was not certified to accept my application thus making his certificate of accuracy invalid. Also, they said that my wifes Identification Document(her notarized passport was no good). I told him thats nonsense, it exactly what they wanted. He suggested i go to an IRS office near me. I thanked him and went over. I spoke with the IRS guy and showed him the copy of everything i sent over. He looked over my return and documents and had no idea why they would've rejected it. He contacted the ITIN office and spoke with someone there. They cleared it up(I hope) and the guy said it would be taken cared of. The IRS agent made a copy of my forms and put a new acceptance form on it and sent it in. I was relieved it was finally taken cared of, but pissed because I never received any rejection noticed in the mail. So we'll see what happens from here.

WOW. This is why it's so important to keep calling and speak to different people because most just won't go the extra mile for you but one will. :wow:

This is exactly why I chose to not do the whole w-7 thing, but I guess it's worth it for people who get a bigger refund. I opted to file married/separate and it was easier.

I hope this clears up soon, I have faith it will, seems like you spoke to a competent person who got the ball rolling. God knows you don't need anymore stress with the upcoming interview and all.

Hey Steph,

Tell me about it. This is all I need right now. The only reason I did this was because I could use the money, and timed my refund with their arrival. Now, it's in God's hands. The woman I spoke with today, said that I need to call back in about 3 weeks and if she doesn't have an ITIN number, they will just process my return with just me. I can understand If I make an error, I can deal with that. But this wasn't my fault, and was because of incompetence on their part. If the guy wasn't an acceptance agent, he shouldn't have been listed on their site. And the part about the ID was no good was nonsense because it was exactly what they asked for, a notarized copy of the passport. It's just so fustrating dealing with incompetence.

Hey Matt,

I hope that everything works out for you in this matter. Don't stress it too much because in just a few more days you will be with your wife and preparing for the BIG interview. God will deal with the incompetence and the lack of communication that you dealt with. Glad that you caught it in time and kept calling to figure out what was going on as Steph said. Soon you will be jumping for joy that this is all over. Stay positive and good luck.

Hi, you got me worried. So I called IRS and they didn't want to give me any information because I am NOT the one applying for the ITIN. The operator wants my husband to call, WHAT!? I told her he is not in the States, "well he hast to call from overseas to give him the status of his application, this is confidential" she said. Did you have any problems with this? I can't believe it! Argh! She will not give me any information.

Matt - sorry for your troubles, truly.

We put through a return with the ITIN application on 3 DEC 2011, for Tax Year 2010. her ITIN document issued by the IRS had a issue date of 19 DEC on it. We received the refund via paper check at the last week in January.

Move forward to february - I filed MFJ online for Ty2011 - We got ach deposit on the refund late in February.

We not have the issues that you had, sorry.

I submitted my 2011 Tax Return with a W-7 for my wife at my local IRS office on 3/1/12. I received my wife's ITIN# in the mail on 3/17/12 with a notice date of 3/15/12. The money for my tax return was deposited in my bank account on 3/23/12. So for me the whole process took 22 days from the time I filed to the time I had the money in my bank account.

In my opinion the extra week or two to wait for the money is worth it as opposed to filing separately and then amending the return later.

When I submitted my documents to the IRS agent she told me it would take 8-10 weeks for the ITIN and an additional 6-8 weeks after that to process the return. The reality was 2 weeks for the ITIN and 1 week for the process of the return. Now, if only USCIS moved at that speed my wife and step-daughter probably would have spent Christmas 2011 with me!

Hello,

I think my problem stems from the fact that the acceptance agent that is listed on the irs site was no longer qualified to to accept applications. But the dumb #### still did mine. Now, I'm jumping threw hoops just to get this completed, and it should have been done long ago. Also, i never knew there was a problem because I never received the letter they supposedly sent which only delayed my process further. I dropped a copy of my return and forms with the irs office across the street from the building and everything should be all set, but I don't trust none of these bastards.
