An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a unique number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Also referred to as a Federal Tax ID Number, it’s similar to a Social Security Number, and is used to identify a business. The best way to apply for a Federal Tax ID Number is online. The IRS EIN Tax ID website provides business owners with a simplified application process to increase accuracy to avoid rejection from the IRS.
An EIN and Your Business
Without an EIN, there would be several things that your business would not be able to do. This includes file and pay taxes, apply for business credit or loans, open a business bank account, have employees, or apply for certain business licenses. It is important to apply for an EIN as soon as you begin planning your business. By doing so, this ensures there are no delays in obtaining needed financing or appropriate licenses needed to begin operations.
