We are not affiliated with the IRS or any other governmental or regulatory body or agency.
FEES AND REFUND POLICY
EIN Application on your own. We provide the services for the rates listed on the Website, which are incorporate herein by reference. All amounts are due and payable in accordance with our invoices.
We will do everything we can to process your application in one business day, provided all information provided to us is accurate. If we cannot complete the EIN process and no EIN is assigned due to an unfixable error, we will provide a refund minus a $10 processing fee.
If we do complete the application and an EIN is successfully assigned (service is provided), no refunds can be issued.
For incomplete orders due to inaccurate information, the customer will be contacted via email by us to rectify the issue, and we will try one additional time to obtain your EIN. If at that point there is another error, the customer will be refunded on the next business day less a $10 processing fee.
SS4 Fax – Ref 101: For EIN applications resulting in a Reference 101 error from the IRS, Govt Assist may contact you via e-mail with instructions on how we will proceed with manually filing your application with the IRS. You will receive an e-mail with a completed SS-4 form PDF on the same day that the Ref 101 error occurred, and the PDF will require your electronic signature. Then, Govt Assist will continue to process your EIN with the IRS, and you will receive the EIN via e-mail in 7-10 business days due to the manual processing wait time for all Reference 101 errors. In the event that there is an additional error within the Ref 101 application and Govt Assist cannot process your application as a Third Party Designee, we will issue a refund of the service fee, minus a $25 processing fee.
