WHAT DOCUMENTS ARE ACCEPTABLE AS PROOF OF IDENTITY AND FOREIGN STATUS?
There are 13 acceptable documents. Each document must be current and contain an expiration date.

*IRS will accept documents issued within 12 months of the application if no expiration date is normally available.  Documents must also show your name and photograph, and support your claim of foreign status.

Below is a list of the ONLY acceptable documents:

  • Passport* (stand-alone document)
  • National identification card (must show photo, name, current address, date of birth, and expiration date)
  • U.S. driver's license
  • Civil birth certificate (required for dependents under 18 years of age)
  • Foreign driver's license
  • U.S. state identification card
  • Foreign voter's registration card

*A passport is the only document that proves both identity and foreign status.  For dependents, the passport must have a date of entry to be a stand-alone document, unless the dependent is from Canada, Mexico, or Military Overseas. If a passport is submitted, a combination of two or more documents must be submitted to meet the document requirements.

WHAT DOCUMENTS ARE ACCEPTABLE AS PROOF OF IDENTITY AND FOREIGN STATUS FOR DEPENDENTS WITHOUT AN ENTRY DATE ON PASSPORT?

Effective January 1, 2016, the passport will no longer be accepted as a stand-alone identification document for dependents if the passport does not have a date of entry, unless the dependent is from Mexico or Canada.

  • U.S. medical records for dependents under age 6, or
  • U.S. school records for dependents under age 18, age 18 and over
  • Rental Statement listing the Applicant’s Name and U.S. Address or

Testimonials

"I went to Tax Accountants, Inc. to reduce my tax debt. Not only did they reduce my tax debt, I got a tax refund because they discovered my tax returns were filed incorrectly. Yolanda was very knowledgeable about how to treat retirement distributions and the other complex tax issues that were ignored by my first tax preparer. If I'd used Tax Accountants to prepare my initial tax return, I could've avoided my tax debt altogether. They far exceeded my expectations and I'd definitely use them again."


C. Curry

"I love Tax Accountants, Inc! They are efficient, accurate, and very timely. They have always been courteous and willing to explain everything to me. They even gave suggestions on how to save for the next year! I would recommend them to everyone."


Denise J.

"Tax Accountants, Inc. assisted us with becoming an IRS approved 501(c)(3) organization. Our application was approved within 1 month after it was submitted to the IRS. They are very thorough and we will use them again."

R. Duncan

"On scale of 1-10, I would give Yolanda Johnson and tax resolution services of Tax Accountants, Inc. a solid 10! Yolanda is thorough, knowledgeable, professional and cheerful. All along the process she offered solutions and strategies that got me an unbelievably great outcome. As a professional person, I would say that Yolanda is the best tax person I have ever worked with. I would recommend her with the highest degree possible. The tax resolution that I received was the best thing that happened to me this year. It was an unbelievable statement when I was told that I was caught up and compliant with the IRS!"


Dr. GT

"Tax Accountants reviewed my 2014 income tax return for errors. I sold a rental home and wanted to make sure my tax preparer at a national chain prepared the tax return correctly. Tax Accountants found missed deductions, amended my tax return, and as a result I received a refund of over $2,000. They did a great job and I'd definitely use them again."


B. Brooks

"The refiling and amending of my taxes gave me a renewed peace of mind and ended sleepless nights. The process ended threatening letter from the state and IRS. For any tax problems, I will seek their services again. Thank you Ms. Johnson."
