Customer: Hi, I'm ***** *****. I run a small business in the UK and we occasionally undertake legal support work for US
organizations. We recently completed a W8-BEN-E form
to be able to supply to clients when requested and obtained an EIN for the form by calling the number that's published in various places. We have now received the official confirmation letter for the EIN which is asking us to file form 1120F for the last four years. We don't have any business presence in the US other than the work we undertake on behalf of US clients and we do this from the UK. Does this seem right or has something gone awry with our process for getting the EIN? Never had to deal with US tax
issues before so rather daunted!
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: ^^ :-)
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $32) to post your type of question to Tax Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Yep, I'm heading to bed so happy to wait a few hours.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
