I tried to sign up to the iBookstore, but got an error email back saying the tax number I had submitted was not recognised.


The sign-up page requires that the number be entered without any hyphens.


The number the IRS gave me has a hyphen.


Is there a solution to this? I've sent off a reply to Apple's email, which requested details of the error message, but have heard nothing back; there seems to be around a 10-day wait between each mail and reply. Have others had this problem, and how have they solved it?
