Question: I just formed a limited liability company. I want a third party to obtain a federal employer id number (EIN) from the IRS. The form is confusing. Can you help me complete IRS Form SS-4?
Answer: Yes. We get this question so often LLC attorney Richard Keyt wrote a detailed article that explains how to complete the IRS Form SS-4. Read “How to Complete IRS Form SS-4.”
