How Do I Find My EIN Number?
To find your EIN (Employer Identification Number), you can try the following steps:
- Check your business tax documents: Your EIN should be listed on any tax documents that you have received from the IRS, such as your tax returns or Form 941 (Employer's Quarterly Federal Tax Return).
- Contact the IRS: You can call the IRS Business and Specialty Tax Line at 800-829-4933 to request your EIN. You will need to provide identifying information about your business, such as the legal name and address.
- Check with your state tax agency: Your state tax agency may also have a record of your EIN if you have registered your business with them. You can contact your state tax agency to request your EIN.
- Search online: If you have previously applied for an EIN online through the IRS website, you can log in to your account to find your EIN.
It is important to note that the EIN is a unique identification number assigned to your business by the IRS, and it is used to identify your business for tax purposes. If you are unable to locate your EIN, you may need to apply for a new one by completing Form SS-4 Application for Employer Identification Number).
