I am so happy I'm not the only dummy that fell for this scam! I am so scared they are going to identity theft all my info! Stupid mistakes happen so fast. I hope they are shut down and arrested! Thank God I realized it and called AMEX to stop the charges.

You are charged $245.00 for an EIN. They are FREE through the government. THEY ARE NOT A UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION.

SCAM!!! I ordered a birth certificate and passport 3 months ago and never received it. I was sent a number to call which was the official service for birth certificates and they had never heard of EIN and said they are not affiliated. I haven't heard from the company since and they do not have a number online.

They overcharge like crazy, paid $100 for replacement documents that otherwise would have been less than $20 through official government websites. They threw me off by being “.gov,” and seeing their ratings were supposedly 6.1/10, but you can literally find no written reviews online. There is even a place for reviews on their website with none there. Then they disclose the government fees on top of your order (which are way less) AFTER you order. Then there is a super rude message about how you agreed to terms and conditions however it’s completely misleading until after your order. Do not waste your time or money. I have never even written a review before but I had to for this place because it is such a terrible source I truly believe it should be shut down.

Just like every other review this website is a total SCAM.
Save yourself $275 when you can go to the actual IRS website for free.
Customer service is rude and the supervisor will get hot and flustered easy and hang up on you.
I'm suing the company for identity fraud because on the IRS website for an EIN before you even start the application it states "UNAUTHORIZED USE IS FEDERALLY PROSECUTABLE".
This website is unauthorized use and impersonates on the real IRS government website. The only way they legally have permission to use your information is if theyr a third party GOVERNMENT website. They are not. Only a third party website. Being overwhelmed in business endeavors makes you miss the fine print sometimes.
They don't do refunds. If you are miraculously able to get ahold of customer support other than email be prepared to have a group of women get hot with you and hang up on you when they get frustrated.
Don't waste your money.
If you have wasted your money give them the BIGGEST headache. Write reviews where you can. Since they scan with SENSITIVE information blow up their emails. Get this website shut down.!
Ask for attorney information. Give the supervisor a headache. Don't let them shove it up your butt and definitely don't thank them for it.
Grimey people and grimey service!!
Report these people and report this website to the FTC @ ftc.gov, on any website and review place you can.
The supervisor, Angela needs to be reported as well.

I have given this company Govfilingsonline one star because I had to do so. I would have given them a zero. This company is very misleading and scam like. I wanted to get my birth certificate and filled out an application and paid $59.95 on my credit card. I never received anything. I called my credit card company and disputed it. I was at first given credit , then the charge was returned. I called the company and explained that I never received anything. The person who answered said he had sent me an application that they filled out for me. I informed him I did not request an application to be filled out for me because I could do that on my own. What I needed was my birth certificate. I was told that they are not responsible for mail delivery and there is absolutely no refunds. The company should not be allowed to steal your money and then on top of it be arrogant. The rep I spoke certainly was arrogant and so confident that there is nothing I can do. I told him I was calling the Better Business Bureau and he simply said " Go ahead, have fun." This company is not a government agency. They should not even be on the internet when googling how to get your birth certificate.

Total Scam. They are charging for a free service and this website should be considered illegal and fraudulent and shut down ASAP.

As other people have stated....
You can go to the official irs.gov website and obtain an EIN number for your business for free... I accidentally went to this site and put in the information and hit submit, and saw they wanted money... this is when I realized my mistake in thinking this website was the legit irs.gov one.
Obviously I didn't go through with it and didn't spend the money but it was too late because I had already given them my url, ss#, and phone number etc. So, I began getting robocalls and sales pitches. Hopefully that's the only thing that happens.. I'm going to have to be on the lookout for ss# fraud too I'd imagine.
Please be careful when you are trying to get your EIN number. Save yourself hundreds of calls from scam artists and go through irs.gov

Those of you giving 5 stars are employees of this company! This company charged me 175.00 to get something that is free!! Same quick easy questions that the actual IRS.gov site offers! It is simple and free there! This site is an absolute ripoff!!!!!

THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT SITE!! DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE! THEY WILL CHARGE YOU EXTRA MONEY FOR THINGS YOU CAN DO ON OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT SITES YOURSELF!! TOTAL SCAM!!
Review by Shna Ulveling1 year ago
Anyone giving this company more than one star obviously works for the company. There should be a rating for less-than-zero starts. This site masquerades as an IRS website when it is not, and charges ridiculous fees to receive a Federal Tax ID than can be obtain from a REAL IRS web page for free. Why do the Feds allow this blatant criminal activity with their name on it to occur?
Just go to a real IRS web site and apply.
Review by Mofolusho Monchal1 year ago
The website IS NOT AN IRS WEBSITE! They impersonate the federal government and demand $245 filing fee for something that is done for free on the IRS website. This website is a fraud having a website with no indication that they are NOT the IRS. Their URL literally says "IRS" that is fraudulent.
Review by NorrieNCExec1 year ago
What a bunch of dishonest sob's. Nearly $300 for what should be a free transaction through the IRS. The deception is in their letterhead, which is has the IRS logo.
It's too bad I was in a hurry, or I could have gone through the entire Google listing and seen others had identified them as scammers. That should not be an expectation of the consumer. If you are not a government agency, don't try to deceive the public that you are.
Review by PFlan1 year ago
Total and utter scam and rip off. DO NOT use this website. You can easily go to the IRS website and apply for what you need at $0. This website is run by crooks and scammers. Do not trust anything that they say. Reporting them to BBB and anywhere and everywhere I can to expose their scam until they hopefully go out of business.
Review by Leam1 year ago
I almost fell for this absurd rip off.
I needed to get an EIN for my LLC and did a search for "irs.gov ein" thinking it would be an easy way to get to the part of the IRS site that I needed.
Despite my knowledge of how online marketing works, my brain was glitchy and I clicked on ad with the URL irs-gov-tax[dot]com/IRS-EIN.
My glitchy brain did not catch the ".com". Had I, I would never have clicked on it.
But I did, and the site it took me to did not raise any red flags, but it should have. So I started completing the paperwork and hit the submit button on the first screen.
The next screen wanted payment information--and THAT was a HUGE red flag with sirens because I already knew that GETTING AN EIN IS FREE.
I went directly to irs.gov and, right on the homepage, is a BIG obvious button that says, "Employer Identification Number (EIN)".
Getting my EIN via the IRS website was EASY and FREE.
There is absolutely NO benefit to using this company to get your EIN. It does not make it easier (and the process on the IRS site could not be easier anyway).

do not waste your money and time i asked for TIN number for myself but they sent copy of my EIN

Review by Tmccrary1 year ago
Well I wish I would have read up on this Co. prior to ordering a EIN number from them. As stated below, I was under the impression this was a IRS site. IT IS NOT. I ordered a EIN for a deceased member and paid the extra for quick service, ($45.00) for a total of $275.00. Its been 2 weeks and I can not reach them by phone or e-mail. I believe I have been had by this Co. . After reading the reviews, I wish someone would make this Co. shut its doors. A complete rip off / fraud.
Review by Stingy1 year ago
Posing like a government website. Should be a crime. EINs are free and EASY to get on the REAL irs website. Dont get taken for $250
Review by Gate2 years ago
First of all, it is FREE to file for an EIN via IRS.ORG. I thought I was on the official IRS website because their website has IRS in it. That right there is mis-leading. I then proceeded and filled in my SSN which I am worried has been compromised by this company who is not in any way affiliated with the IRS. They charged me $274.00 for a FREE SERVICE. It is free and instant from IRS.ORG. Don't get scammed like I did!
Review by Eldretta4 years ago
Not only did they give the deceased a middle initial when the deceased had no middle initial. Rendering the Tax-ID unusable. They clearly state satisfaction guaranteed, whoever I had to call 3 times and insist they return my $250.00. They say you will receive a refund in 5 to 7 days. It has been 9 and I haven't even recieved the email telling me I am getting a return of my money yet. And, they didn't even offer to correct their mistake. I had to do that myself.
Review by Malcopm Ramiza5 years ago
Starting a new business can be stressful and time consuming. I wanted to focus on my business rather than deal with the IRS. EIN Filing Service let me do just that by providing me with a quick and easy way to file and receive my EIN. They were extremely professional, and exceeded my expectations. I received my EIN in 2 days, along with the confidence that everything had been filed correctly with the IRS. I would highly recommend them to anyone that needs an EIN.
