For Foreign Filers


Foreign filers must have an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) prior to online application. If you are a foreign filer without an ITIN, you can still receive an EIN through filling out and mailing in Form SS-4. To run a legitimate business, foreigners will be required to pay corporate income tax and file taxes.
