Ditto. Go to the secretary of state website and down load the forms you need. You can call and they will tell you which forms to complete but offer little to no assistance.
As someone mentioned earlier you have to research the name, (perhaps reserve it) then complete the forms and file two copies with the state with the required fees.
Then you get the EIN if you have employees otherwise the IRS does not want to issue those anymore.
