US Government Shutdown Impacts EIN Procurement Service

Anyone watching world news is aware of what’s going on in Washington, DC.  What may not be readily apparent is how this kind of political stalemate can impact some routine business services.  One thing that is suffering an immediate impact is our ability to obtain EINs for applicants without a SSN or ITIN.  The online application process is available for entities whose principal business, office or agency, or legal residence (in the case of an individual), is located in the United States or U.S. Territories and the principal officer, general partner, grantor, owner, trustor etc. has a valid Taxpayer Identification Number (Social Security Number, Employer Identification Number, or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number).  Applications that do not meet those requirements must be called in to the IRS, however, no live telephone customer service assistance is available through the IRS at this time.

EIN procurement orders are still being accepted by Delaware Intercorp, Inc.  If you are an applicant without a SSN or ITIN, we will be glad to review your SS4 for completeness so that you may make any applicable changes to avoid further delay when the IRS resumes normal operations.
