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.
