I don't know if I can give a company name here, but google legal zoom, and the top company is the one I used. It was about $150 but that was 10 years ago. I went with an S Corp, which saves on payroll taxes since only part of your income is counted as salary. Applying for an EIN is done via an IRS form. I don't think that there is a charge. You can do it on your own, or the company you use can do it (I think).
