Did you apply as an individual? I'm currently in the process of filling out my tax info and it seems like these are the steps. Submit original documents to the IRS to prove your identity and foreign status OR find a certifying acceptance agent (CAA) to prove your identity and foreign status. Once certified, you can use the W7 form to apply for an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN). Use the ITIN on Udemy's tax form page in order for them to submit a 1040 form on your behalf. I see that there's an option to put that the TIN doesn't apply to you, but I can't see how that's the case given that we fall under non-resident alien status. I'm worried that by choosing this option and by not providing a ITIN that we may not be entitled to the Canada-US tax treaty which NILs any tax. Thoughts?
