A Federal Tax ID Number,
also known as an Employer Identification Number or EIN, is basically a Social Security Number for a business. It is the number the Internal Revenue Service uses to identify the business. It must be included on all tax filings. Also, banks commonly require an EIN to open a business bank account.
If you are forming a new business, you should obtain an EIN. If you currently operate your business as a sole proprietorship or general partnership and are now looking to incorporate or form a limited liability company, you must obtain a new, separate EIN for your business.
We can obtain your EIN from the IRS on behalf of your business. The typical turn-around time for this service is 24 hours after we receive approval of your formation filing from the state. In order to obtain the Federal Tax ID (EIN) Number for your business, you must provide your personal Social Security Number. In addition, you must provide a physical US address; PO Boxes are not acceptable.
Cost: $35 Service Fee. There are no Federal Filing Fees.
