If you’re a U.S. citizen and you have an SSN, you can get your EIN for free on IRS’s website here.
HOWEVER, if you’re NOT a U.S. citizen and you do NOT have an SSN, the process of getting your EIN is more complicated and requires more paperwork.
Third-Party Designee for EIN is a person located in the United States authorized to receive an applicant’s EIN and answer questions to the completion of the EIN application.
The Third Party Designee for EIN represents the applicant applying and processing the applicant’s EIN application from the filing process until the completion when the applicant receives his or her EIN.
If you don’t have a Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN), it’s strongly recommended to have a business lawyer act as your Third Party Designee to apply for your EIN on your behalf.

What Responsibilities Does a Third Party Designee for EIN Have?
A business lawyer designated as the Third Party Designee for your EIN application will correctly fill out your EIN application for you by filling out the bottom part of Form SS-4 to apply for your EIN.
Authorized Third Party Designee located in the United States can receive an EIN and give it to the applicant to immediately use it to start a business in the United States, open up a U.S. bank account, apply for permits and licenses, and comply with IRS regulations.
Once the Third Party Designee processes your EIN application with the IRS, the Third Party Designee receives the Employer Identification Number (EIN) (Tax ID) and can answer questions about the application on behalf of the applicant if there are any problems.
Further, the Third Party Designee for EIN has an obligation to keep a completed signed copy of the EIN application and signed an authorized statement for each application filed with the IRS.
In short, the Third Party Designee represents you before the IRS while applying for your EIN or Tax ID.
However, keep in mind that the Third Party Designee’s authority and responsibility ends as soon the EIN is received by the applicant.
