I am trying to publish in the iBookstore. The application keeps asking for the US tax identification number. Is there a way to get around this such as a temporary setup. I have been working on this for two years - the IRS finally told me that they didn't process it as I paid a Canadian notory to get my passport notorized.

I am now reapplying as the rules changed. The IRS have informed me that if I get all the paper work right they might be able to issue the letter in as little as 65 days.

The next problem lies with the paperwork order. The IRS requires the application, the certified passport, and a letter from Apple saying they will be the one's addressing the tax collection. The problem is that you can't get the Apple account until you have the tax number and you can't get the tax number until you have the  Apple account. The IRS sees nothing wrong with this logic!


Have I missed the point somewhere?


Please help.
