Catalog Number 38262Q www.irs.gov Form 13551 (Rev. 8-2014) Page 2 Instructions for Form 13551, Application to Participate in the IRS Acceptance Agent Program General Instructions Purpose of this Form. All persons who wish to participate in the TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) Acceptance Agent Program must apply by completing this application. What is an Acceptance Agent/Certifying Acceptance Agent. Acceptance agents are individuals or entities (colleges, financial institutions, accounting firms, etc.) that have entered into formal agreements with the IRS that permit them to assist alien individuals and other foreign persons with obtaining TINs. The type of duties that you are permitted to perform is based upon your application to become an acceptance agent or a certifying acceptance agent. (See Revenue Procedure 2006-10 for additional information.) Who May Apply. Persons eligible to become acceptance agents include a financial institution defined in section 265(b)(5) of the Internal Revenue Code (Code) or §1.165-12(c)(1)(iv) of the regulations, a college or university that is an educational organization defined in §1.501(c)(3)-1(d)(3) (i), a federal agency defined in section 6402(g) of the Code, persons that provide assistance to taxpayers in the preparation of their tax returns, and any other person or categories of persons that may be authorized by regulations or IRS procedures. An eligible person may be a U.S. person or a foreign person. Each individual listed as a Principal, Partner or Owner of the business, authorized representative or primary/ alternate contact of the business must have attained the age of 18 as of the date of this application. A person required to become a Certified Acceptance Agent (CAA) must be covered under the professional standards of Circular 230. This includes individuals who are attorneys admitted to practice before the bar, Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), enrolled agents and registered tax return preparers not under suspension or disbarment from practice before IRS. When to Apply. All new and renewal applications will only be accepted during the program’s “open season” which is May 1 through August 31 each year. Therefore, if your AA Agreement is due to expire during the current year, it is important to submit a new application during the open season so that the operations of your business are not interrupted. It can take up to four months from the time that you submit your application to receive your approved Acceptance Agent Agreement from IRS. How to Apply. All new and renewing persons will be required to complete Form 13551 (Application to Participate in the IRS Acceptance Agent Program). In addition, there must be an attached fingerprint card or proof of professional status for each individual listed on Line 5 as an Authorized Representative (see instructions for fingerprint cards below.) Prior to applying for Acceptance Agent Status, mandatory training must be completed and the self-certification at the end of the training must be signed and attached to your Form 13551 when submitting it to IRS. The training is available online at www.IRS.gov. and can be accessed by entering “How to become an Acceptance Agent” in the search feature in the upper right corner of the IRS home page. Forensic training documentation for new and renewal applications must also be attached to Form 13551. Note: Your application to become an Acceptance Agent will not be processed without an attached, signed, self-certification training and documentation of forensic training. Fingerprint Cards. Each individual listed as a responsible party or authorized representative of the business must have attained the age of 18 as of the date of this application. If the authorized representative is an attorney, CPA or enrolled agent, but not a certified Electronic Return Originator (ERO), evidence of U.S. professional status may be submitted in lieu of the fingerprint card. The following persons are exempt from the fingerprinting requirement: a financial institution within the meaning of I.R.C. 265(b)(5) or Treasury Regulations 1.1 65-1 2(c)(1)(iv), a college or university that qualifies as an educational organization under Treasury Regulations 1.501 (c)(3)-l (d)(3)(i), a casino, Federal agencies as defined in IRC 6402(g) an ERO in good standing with the IRS and foreign nationals without a Social Security Number (SSN) residing outside the United States. (Evidence of your professional status may be obtained by contacting the issuing authority.) Note: Individuals CANNOT take their own fingerprints. The fingerprint card used for the Acceptance Agent Program is unique, and should be obtained by calling the IRS Austin Campus at 1-866-255-0654. If the authorized representative of the business changes, the business must submit an amended application, including a new fingerprint card, if required, for the authorized representative. Your application will not be processed if you do not provide a completed fingerprint card or evidence of professional status and the original signature of both the authorized representative and the principal, partner or owner or owner of the business. Faxed copies of this application will not be accepted. When to Update Information. Acceptance Agents must notify the IRS within 30 days of all changes to the information they originally submitted on Form 13551, Application to Participate in the IRS Acceptance Agent (AA) Program, by completing another Form 13551 and checking the “amended” box and attach a statement explaining the changes. This is important for several reasons. If information is not up-to-date on our database, you may not receive important IRS information or correspondence. Be sure to fully complete the application changing only the information that is different from that submitted on the original Form 13551. The revised Form 13551 will not change your address of record for tax purposes, nor will it automatically update information associated with your EIN (Employer’s Identification Number). Where to Apply.

The EFIN must be the registered number for the location specified and EIN. Line 4. Enter the IRS issued Employer Identification Number (EIN). Note: All businesses must obtain an EIN before submitting your application. Line 5. Enter the name, title and PTIN of the authorized representative.

They are the only individuals, other than the principal, partner or owner, who have authority to sign the Certificates of Accuracy. Each business location is permitted to select up to ten authorized representatives. If you need extra space to add additional authorized representatives for the business location listed on Page 1, or for additional business locations, use the continuation sheet attached to the Form 13551.

If you answered “Yes” to the suitability question in box 10, please provide an explanation including dates and circumstances and why you believe that it should not affect your fitness to be an acceptance agent or certifying acceptance agent. You will also need to attach a fingerprint card with your application. Line 11. For the purpose of becoming an acceptance agent, if a “doing business as” (DBA) name is used other than the name provided on Line 2, enter that information here and include a brief explanation. Use an additional sheet of paper if you need more space. Note: The business will be authorized to operate as an AA/CAA only under the name provided here or on Line 2. Line 12. Enter the complete street address, city/county, state/country and zip code/foreign postal code where the business is located. Note: A post office box (P.O. Box) will not be accepted as part of the address. Line 13. Enter the telephone number, fax number, and email address of the business. If, in addition to the business telephone, there is another number where you would like to be contacted by IRS, you may enter that information on this line also, notating that it is the alternative telephone number. Line 14. This line should be completed only if you are using a business mailing address that is different from the address entered on Line 12. The same mailing address can not be used for multiple business locations. Line 15. Check the “yes” or “no” box to indicate if the business provides tax related services year round (January through December). If the answer is “no”, provide a brief explanation why the business does not provide tax related services year round. Line 15a. Enter the volume of Forms W-7 that you anticipate filing during a 12 month calendar period. Lines 16 and 17. Enter the name of the primary and alternate contact(s) only if different than the authorized representative(s) of the business (individual listed on Line 5 or on the continuation sheet (s) to the application). This is the person that has been authorized by the business to contact the ITIN Operations to inquire about the status of W-7 applications, but they are not permitted to sign the Form W-7(COA). Also provide the person’s business title, telephone and fax numbers and their email address. Each business location may have one primary and one alternate contact. Line 18. You may attach a separate statement to provide a detailed description of the activities performed by the business which would validate this request for Acceptance Agent status. For example, a tax preparation firm preparing U.S. federal income tax returns for nonresident alien real estate investors who do not qualify for an SSN, would establish your purpose for applying for entry into the AA Program. Line 19. If the business performs tax return preparation, the principal, partner or owner of the business may request to be included on a public list of acceptance agents published by the IRS on its website. Lines 20 and 21. Both the authorized representative and the principal, partner or owner must print and sign their name to this application. By signing the application you are authorizing the Internal Revenue Service to conduct suitability checks as referenced in the Revenue Procedure. Line 22.
