What is an EIN Number?

EIN Number

EIN numbers are identification numbers issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to business entities. The EIN number consists of nine digits and is used for tax purposes.

When a business registers with the IRS, they will be assigned an EIN number. This number will be used on all tax documents and correspondences with the IRS. EIN numbers are also used by banks and other financial institutions when businesses open bank accounts or apply for loans. In short, an EIN number is a unique identifier for businesses in the United States.

Reasons you need a EIN Number

Pay federal taxes

An EIN number is required for anyone who wants to file federal taxes. This applies to individuals, businesses, trusts, and estates. The EIN number is used to identify the taxpayer and is used on all tax returns filed with the IRS.

Hire employees

If you're thinking about hiring employees, you'll need to obtain an EIN number first. You'll need to provide this number to your employees when they start working for you. Without an EIN number, you will not be able to withhold taxes from your employees' paychecks or file payroll tax returns.

Open a bank account

When you're ready to open a business bank account, you'll need to have your business's EIN number on hand as most banks will require you to provide it during the account opening.

Apply for business licenses and permits

If you're starting a new business, one of the first things you'll need to do is apply for a business permit or license. In order to do this, you'll need to have an EIN number to provide to the relevant govermment agencies.
