Scam! They're Charging To Do A Free Service! Yesterday, when trying to apply for an EIN, I'd Googled to find out what to do. First site that appeared was irs-ein-tax-id.com. When visiting the site, their first disclosure makes it sound as if they're a contracted agency. Working off the fact of how badly people want to start their own business through these times, they set up their scam perfectly. First initial charge is $250. They then sent an email stating "File your EIN now and take advantage of the tax credits available to Sole Proprietors and save $85.00." This made things seriously sound like a break. Then upon visiting, they'd even set another discount to charge $160. Later, after finding out I needed an LLC instead, I checked the official IRS site. This was when I'd learned this is a free service. When I reviewed their site, this company waits until the disclaimer to mention their not affiliated, and wrote it in dark lettering, to draw your attention away. After doing more research, I found out that they also charge different prices to people in the scheme to Reel people in! When I requested a refund, and also spoke on how they charge different prices to others, they refused to do so, or even comment on pricing. Also they said "immediate use." There's a 2 to 3wk wait! Beware and please read this!
