What is an LLC?

A limited liability company (LLC) legally separates
an owner from their business. This business identity combines the most attractive aspects of a corporation, sole proprietorship, and partnership into a new organizational structure. The result? Improved liability protection and pass-through status tax advantages.

Why Does an LLC Need an EIN?

Almost all LLCs are legally required to obtain an Employer Identification Number (EIN). There are some exceptions for single-member LLCs, but there are also several instances where these corporations need one as well. You’ll have to file for an EIN 
if any of the following apply to you:

01.

Single member LLCs that elect to be treated as either an S or C corporation will need to get an EIN for LLC federal tax purposes

02.

If your single member LLC has one or more employees, you’ll be required to apply for an EIN for LLC compliance

03.

If you add an owner to your single member LLC, you’ll be required to obtain an EIN for LLC legality

04.

If you pay taxes to ATF (the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives)

05.

If you have a Keough retirement plan

Benefits of an EIN 
for an LLC

An LLC EIN number can benefit your business in several ways, 
in addition to meeting legal standards and federal income tax purposes. Here’s are some of the additional perks an EIN provides:

  • An EIN for LLC usage reduces the risk of identity theft since it can be used as a form of business identification in place of your personal Social Security number
  • An EIN makes it possible to build up your business’ credit rating, open a business bank account, and apply for loans
  • It allows your business entity to legally hire employees
  • They allow you to maximize your tax-deductible payments
