Employer Identification Number (EIN)

What is an EIN?

A Federal Tax ID, also known as an Employer Identification Number (EIN) or a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), is an identification number assigned to your business by the IRS designed to identify your business to federal agencies.

The Federal Tax Identification Number is also known as the Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a nine digit number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to identify tax accounts of employers and certain other who have no employees. To apply for an EIN or Tax ID number, you must have a Social Security number or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).The IRS issues ITINs to individuals who are required to have a U.S. Taxpayer Identification Number but who do not have SSN, and are not eligible to obtain, an SSN.


Do I need a EIN?

All legal businesses need a Federal Tax ID or EIN to operate, the criteria is as follows: do you have employee(s)? do you operate as a corporation or partnership? do you file tax returns for the following: employment, excise or Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms? purchased an on going business?

All other entities not mentioned above are required by law to obtain a EIN.

All banks will require your company to provide an EIN to open a bank account in the US; your company would also be required to obtain an EIN if you will have wage earning employees in the US.

If you form a business entity (corporation or LLC) or partnership, which is technically a separate “person” from you (even if you are the sole owner and the only worker), then you must get an tax ID number for that business.
