I'm non US resident but have formed an LLC in WY and now I need to obtain an EIN. Having no SSN/ITIN or other LLC's EIN it is somehow difficult.
On the other hand applying online takes 7 minutes. Can anybody help me? I will pay for your assistance but need the EIN by Monday.
You should retain a lawyer, or another qualified individual, to act as the third party designee for the corporation (if you do not have a partner or co-owner who is a US citizen).
The designee should prepare Form SS-4 (Application for Employer Identification Number) and Form 8821 (Tax Information Authorization) for the corporation’s president to sign and return.
You need an ITIN before you can get an EIN.
To obtain an ITIN, you must complete IRS Form W-7, IRS Application for Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw7.pdf) . The Form W-7 requires documentation substantiating foreign/alien status and true identity for each individual. You may either mail the documentation, along with the Form W-7, to the address shown in the Form W-7 Instructions, present it at IRS walk-in offices, or process your application through an Acceptance Agent authorized by the IRS.
The EIN is then a 5 minute online process at www.irs.gov.
I've never heard of this problem. Usually you need to tie a personal social to the ein. It is possible that since you have a Secretary of State number that we could use that but would have to dig into it.
