Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
The procedure of applying an EIN number is the same.
An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, and is used to identify a business entity. Generally, businesses need an EIN. You may apply for an EIN in various ways, and now you may apply online - http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/article/0,,id=102767,00.html
This is a free service offered by the Internal Revenue Service.

 

Apply By EIN Toll-Free Telephone Service.
Taxpayers can obtain an EIN immediately by calling the Business & Specialty Tax Line at _(800)_829_4933_. The hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday. An assistor takes the information, assigns the EIN, and provides the number to an authorized individual over the telephone. Note: International applicants must call _(267)_941_1099_ (Not a toll-free number).

 

Apply By FAX
Taxpayers can FAX the completed Form SS4 application, after ensuring that the Form SS4 contains all of the required information. If it is determined that the entity needs a new EIN, one will be assigned using the appropriate procedures for the entity type. If the taxpayer's fax number is provided, a fax will be sent back with the EIN within four (4) business days.

Apply By Mail
The processing time frame for an EIN application received by mail is four weeks. Ensure that the Form SS4 contains all of the required information.

 

Here is SS4 form - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fss4.pdf
