If you have not been issued a social security number, enter zeros in box #5. The Department of State must provide this information to the Internal Revenue service routinely. Any applicant who fails to provide the required information is subject to a $500 penalty enforced by the IRS. All questions on this matter should be referred to the nearest IRS office.
