What is a EIN?

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a unique nine-digit identification number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to businesses, organizations, and certain individuals for tax purposes in the United States. It serves as a way to identify entities for reporting employment taxes, filing tax returns, and conducting other business activities. The EIN is similar to a Social Security number for individuals but is specifically used for entities. It is required for various business-related activities, such as opening a business bank account, hiring employees, and applying for business licenses. The EIN helps the IRS track and monitor businesses for tax compliance and reporting purposes.

What's the process?

Step 1: Determine eligibility and purpose: Ensure you meet the criteria for an EIN and identify the specific reason you need it, such as starting a business or hiring employees.

Step 2: Complete the application: Apply online through the IRS website or use the mail/fax option. Provide accurate information about the entity's legal name, business type, mailing address, and responsible party details.

Step 3: Obtain the EIN: If applying online, the EIN is generated instantly upon successful submission. Download and save the confirmation notice. If applying by mail or fax, expect a longer processing time. Keep the assigned EIN in a secure place for future use, such as tax filings and banking activities.
