Employer ID Numbers (EINs)

中文 | 한국어 | TiếngViệt | Pусский

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, and is used to identify a business entity. Generally, businesses need an EIN. You may apply for an EIN in various ways, and now you may apply online. This is a free service offered by the Internal Revenue Service. You must check with your state to make sure you need a state number or charter.

Apply for an EIN Online

Check out our Interview-style online EIN application. No need to file a Form SS-4! We ask you the questions and you give us the answers. The application includes embedded help topics and hyperlinked keywords and definitions so separate instructions aren’t needed. After all validations are done you will get your EIN immediately upon completion. You can then download, save, and print your confirmation notice. It’s fast, free, and user-friendly!

Change of Ownership or Structure

Generally, businesses need a new EIN when their ownership or structure has changed. Refer to "Do You Need a New EIN?" to determine if this applies to your business.

Verify Your EIN

If you want to verify your EIN, see the Lost or Misplaced Your EIN page for instructions.

Daily Limitation of an Employer Identification Number

Effective May 21, 2012, to ensure fair and equitable treatment for all taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Service will limit Employer Identification Number (EIN) issuance to one per responsible party per day. This limitation is applicable to all requests for EINs whether online or by fax or mail. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
