Why do I need to have Form 1583 notarized?
Due to USPS regulations, you need to have the form notarized before sending it to us. The notary's seal proves that you are the person who is authorized to receive mail in your name or your company's name. You can find notaries almost anywhere. Banks and courthouses normally have a notary onsite. Check with your bank first, as some offer this service free to their customers.
If you live outside of the USA, you can have a local non-U.S. notary verify your identity. The U.S. embassies also provide notary service for a fee. Bank officials, lawyers, and government officials can also endorse your form with their signature and official seal.
