General FAQ

A Federal Tax ID Number or Employer Identification Number is also referred to as an EIN, TIN and FEIN. It is similar to a Social Security Number (SSN) in that it is used by the Internal Revenue Service for tax identification purposes. An EIN is issued with a unique 9-digit number in the following sample format: XX-XXXXXXX. EIN Numbers do not expire and will only be issued to a Sole Proprietor once. Any of the following entity types must be issued an EIN to conduct business: LLC, Corporation, Partnership, S-Corporation, Non Profit Organization, etc. When an EIN has been assigned by the IRS to a business entity, it becomes the permanent Federal Tax ID Number for that entity.

Anyone can apply for a Tax ID that has a valid Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). If you do not have a SSN or ITIN you will need to obtain one before you apply for a Tax ID Number.

There are several reasons why you might need an EIN (Tax ID) Number, but the most common include: starting a new business, opening a bank account, hiring of employees, protecting your personal identity, filing federal income taxes, getting a business license and other IRS compliance reasons.

If you've been previously assigned an EIN but do not remember it, we can assist you in retrieving that EIN and getting the official verification letter from the IRS.

There is no difference between an EIN and a Tax ID Number. However, there is another number referred to as a State Tax ID Number which should not be confused with a Federal Tax ID Number or Employer Identification Number (EIN).
