I wish I had seen these reviews. I, too, thought it was an official site. The web address looks legit. I even double checked when it asked for payment. (Been a long time since I applied for an EIN. I didn't remember paying anything.) Bad enough that I've paid them, but they've got my credit card info AND my SSN. It's actually really scary.
Tip for consumers: BEWAREAsk Vicki about Irs-ein-application
They made themselves look like a government site and I filled out the info for the EIN. Then they charged my credit card $247. I though this was odd, but give them my info. cause I was in a hurry. I got the EIN the next day and found out later that it should have been free. Boy, did I get hosed.
After saying I would be charged $97.00 I got charged $197 for an ein number. I called the IRS and they said it should have been free. I called this company multiple times and emailed them with no answer.
I'd give them 0 stars if I could. I hate them. They make it loook like they're gov., but they aren't. They don't have an autofill option, so you take your time filling in the information. Then they hit you at the end with 150.00 payment owed. I hope the person that started the site gets cancer this year, because they lead you on. They odon't want to tell you that they will charge until you've already applied.
new URLs (some older) they have made since the old ones like irs-ein-application received dozens of scam reports

I love how on adsense, they actually allow this to keep happening. You go to these review sites which use adsense and read about scams committed by companies whom old ads and new ads are still dominately being displayed , probably because they are the highest bidder. My uncle was ripped off more than $150 from the original url, and they never refunded his money.
They took my ss number and creidt card info and I never heard anything back even though they said they would in a few minutes.
I didnt realize it wasnt the IRS, where you can get the inof for free in a few seconds.
Does anyone know if they are a complete fraud?
This website purports to be able to obtain an EIN number from the IRS for a dead person's estate. It charges $150 to do so. In fact, an EIN number is available from the IRS for FREE. In addition, any third party who tries to get an EIN number for an estate (that is, anyone other than the Executor) must have written authorization from the Executor to do so, and if lacking that, the third party is acting illegally. Therefire, IRS-EIN-application.com is acting illegally in trying to provide this service.
