Is the TIN I need an Employer Identification Number?Yes. For help from a pro, I'd try your tax preparer instead of your lawyer.This is one where a DIY approach is a reasonable alternative. Here's where I'd suggest you start: http://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-%26-Self-Empl... . The actual application starts at the link at the bottom of the page.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WORKING PRINTER AND PDF READER on your computer before you start. You will need both, and you'll only get one shot at printing out the letter that your broker will need. Miss that and it will take some time to get a replacement from the IRS.I'd also suggest downloading a paper copy of Form SS-4 here: www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fss4.pdf and filling it out by hand before starting the online version. It will save you some time with the online system, and the online system will time out if you take too long.The instructions are here: www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/iss4.pdf . And the online system won't let you use punctuation. At all. No periods, no commas, no apostrophes, no nuttin'. --Peter
