Customer Question
Ok I will be happy...
Ok I will be happy to pay if someone is willing to apply on the IRS website for an EIN for my LLC.
The website allows for online applications done by third parties hence Im asking this here.
I own an LLC and have an ITIN number as a foreigner and I do not have a SSN.
However the IRS online application that generates the EIN numbers allows me to apply with an ITIN but i keep getting an error message 102.
I file as a disregarded entity, Im trying to gen an an EIN for my LLC to cash a check and I cannot open an account without an EIN for my LLC.
So I will be happy to pay and provide my ITIN number and LLC name so long as someone can provide me with an EIN number right away as the IRS website claims it does.
Otherwise I don't need any other advice, I need an EIN for my LLC.
Thanks

Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax. I can provide the service.

I'll need to post an Offer of Additional Service, which will allow for a private link to get the materials needed and to privately transmit your EIN.

You should be aware that the EIN system is only available Monday through Friday from 0700 to 2200 EST. The earliest this could be done is Monday (unless they are closed for the holiday).

Hi There-

I had to opt out of this. The IRS does not allow a third party to do this without a signed Form SS-4, which we wouldn't be able to file before your timeline. If you are having a hard time getting the website to work for you, then you may need to use one of the other methods available here- https://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/How-to-Apply-for-an-EIN

Best of luck...

Hi. Another Expert here.

Error Code 102 indicates that a party on the application has a mismatch with information provided to the IRS. This might be your name and SSN don't match the records if you are the primary business owner. It could be something slightly different.

In any case, when you get a Code 102, it cannot be resolved online. It WILL require a phone call at the least (with hold times typically an hour or more) and even then it still may require written correspondence before an EIN can be issued.

In any case, yes, a third-party rep like an EA or CPA CAN assist you, but once you have received the error code once, you will not be eligible to finish online, so it is likely to take at least 2 billable hours MINIMUM to straighten this out with assistance.

Since the website here takes a cut of any fees quoted herein, I would venture to guess that nobody will lowball this job for $50 or $75. But at least you should be informed as to why the cost is higher than "free" or some nominal amount. It will take some work by an experienced professional, or you certainly are "free" to attack this on your own, but it will required mailed correspondence and more than a few days to resolve, I'm afraid.

I hope this makes it a little more understandable.
