Alternatively, you may prefer to go through the IRS directly to obtain your EIN on your own, at no charge, however, for many of our customers the process is not that simple. For example, the IRS will assign the EIN manually anytime one cannot be assigned online.

Our trained representatives are well-versed with obtaining EIN’s online and manually and they know which documentation must be accompanied with your application depending on your entity type and specific situation.
