Hi - I hold a JD (Juris Doctorate, a doctoral degree in the law), concentration in Tax Law & Corporate law, an MBA (specialization in finance & tax), and BBA from Mercer University’s Stetson School of Business and Economics, as well as CFP® and CRPS designations. - I can help here

...

First, I'm sorry for your loss

...

How can I help .... You can certainly apply online for the trust's EIN

...

Here's the site for that: https://sa.www4.irs.gov/modiein/individual/legal-structure.jsp

...

(Note that the option for "trust" is toward the bottom of the screen)

...

As an aside, (may be stating the obvious) now that your sister has passed the trust has become irrevocable.

...

Please let me know what other questions you may have

...

I need guidance on how to properly answer questions. I do not need the link to apply
Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 1 year ago

I'd be glad to make an additional services offer and work through this with you.

..

Doing this, in this posting back and forth manner, will not be very efficient .. as SO much of the answer will come from things that only you will know.

...

I'll make the offer now, and we can do this evening (east cost here, getting late, so would like to do ti fairly quickly, if you don't mind) OR any time tomorrow is fine.

Hi,

...

I just found this excellent video of line by line instructions for filling out the SS-4 (application for EIN)

...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY2GnT-o6Pk

...

These will be the same items you'll be asked to complete if you use the online version

...

But again, I'll make the offer for the lowest amount possible in the event that you'd like my help walking through the process

...
