Has anybody from India got an ITIN number from IRS?
I am from India and I am supposed to pay 15% (and not 30%) tas as per the treaties.
After a long confusion I applied for ITIN during early January 2014. I got a reply from IRS in March asking for more documents. Although I produced those documents I got a Notice CP567 from IRS stating that "we have rejected your ITIN application". I would request to share the following.
- I tried to call IRS by phone. But they keep in call waiting for long time (more than 30 minutes). I could not reach them in phone although after spending a lot of money on international calls.
- IRS encourages to send original documents for verification. I had send my original Aadhar card and requested them to send it back. But unfortunately they did not send it back.
Has anybody from India got ITIN number from IRS? Is there any easy wasy to contact them like email?
