Some of my corporate clients recently reported to me their varying experiences with phoning IRS in the States to request an Employer Identification Number (EIN) for W-8BEN purposes.

If you are having trouble, please do feel free to contact me. It seems there is some inconsistency in how these calls are being fielded from IRS’ end.

I will do all I can to assist. All clients who have sought the EIN have been eventually successful in obtaining the number over the phone.
