Do I Need a Federal EIN?
An Employer Identification Number (EIN), also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, is the corporate equvalent to a social security number assigned to business entities operating in the United States. This is how the Internal Revenue Services identifies your business entity. You may apply for an EIN in several ways; online, fax, or mail in the completed Form SS-4 to the service center for your state.
According to the IRS, your business must have an EIN if any of these criteria apply to your business:
You have employees;
Your business operates as a corporation or a partnership;
You withhold taxes on income other than wages paid to a nonresident alien;
You have a Keogh Plan; or
You’re involved with certain organizations listed on the IRS website.
Aside from filing taxes, you may also need an EIN in order to apply for business permits, open a bank account in the name of your business, apply for a credit card in the name of your business, or furnish independent contractors a Form 1099.
While applying for an EIN, the IRS requires that you disclose the name and taxpayer ID number (SSN, TIN, or EIN) of the person who is responsible for the business, such as the company’s principal owner, general partner, or grantor. Once an EIN is assigned, it belongs to the registered business. According to the IRS, even if the number is never used to file a federal tax return, it may not be reassigned to another business. Also, it will never be canceled, but the IRS will close the account upon request. It is possible that later the responsible party may re-open the account by writing to the IRS.
