You can absolutely still file, even if you're not a US citizen or do not have a US Social Security Number.
The IRS allows FEIN obtainment to foreign individuals however the process to obtain is divergent to the process used to obtain an EIN for individuals with a social security number. If this option is selected, it will be incumbent upon you to sign the form which we will prepare and fax for you upon the completion of your order. Assignment of an EIN typically takes 4 weeks or longer to obtain after the prepared document provided has been faxed to the IRS.
Here are a few things of which to be aware:
1) We can not ship your Kit or Documents internationally. We will supply the documents for your order Electronically with all Packages, but if you order the Gold or Platinum we will need a US address to send your Kit to for the order.
2) Some states require your company address to be a physical address in that state.
3) Our application is not formatted for international addresses or phone numbers, so if you run into an issue with a foreign address or phone number then follow this model:
Address: Your Street Address
City: ALL the rest of your address information. City, Country, Country Codes, etc.
State: Please select TX
Zip Code: Enter "00000"
Enter the first 10 digits of your phone number and provide us with a good email address to reach you at.
(PLEASE, AS SOON AS YOU HAVE AN ORDER NUMBER LOGIN IN AND PLACE THE ORDER ON HOLD. THEN EMAIL US AT SUPPORT@INCFILE.COM WITH YOUR ORDER NUMBER, OR CALL US SO WE CAN ADJUST THE ADDRESS CORRECTLY)
- We do not handle permits, licensing, or taxes.
- We do not assist in obtaining any bank accounts, we only offer a consultation & Services with Bank of America.
- (Please note, if you or any partner in your filing are not Residents of the USA then Bank of America will not be able to assist you in opening a Business Bank account due to restrictions most banks have on this with foreign individuals.)
- We also do not accept non-U.S. credit/debit cards as payment, Wire Transfers, or Paypal.
- (All cards must be VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, or American Express to be accepted. In the online system, you have to enter a US address.
