Do I need Forensic Document Training for the IRS?

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) entrusts Certifying Acceptance Agents (CAAs) with a critical role: verifying the identities of foreign individuals applying for Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs). This responsibility necessitates a high level of expertise in detecting fraudulent documents. To ensure CAAs possess this skillset, the IRS mandates the completion of quality forensic document training. If you are interested in becoming a CAA, you will need to complete an approved Forensic Document Training program and provide a copy of your certificate to the IRS during the application process.

This training empowers CAAs to act as a vital line of defense against identity theft, fraud, and other security threats.
