Correction to the Instructions for Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (Rev. September 2019)

On page 5, under Certifying Acceptance Agent (CAA), the first sentence should now read: "A Certifying Acceptance Agent (CAA) can verify original documentation and certified copies of the documentation from the issuing agency for primary and secondary applicants and their dependents, except for foreign military identification card."

This change will be reflected in the next revision of the Instructions for Form W-7, which will be issued in 2020.
