Form SS-4, Application for Employer Identification Number (EIN)

IRS makes it mandatory to have a valid EIN, the Employer Identification Number to report your federal tax returns online. To obtain a valid EIN use this Form SS-4. An EIN is a nine-digit number (for example, 12-3456789) assigned to employers, sole proprietors, corporations, partnerships, estates, trusts, certain individuals, and other entities for tax filing and reporting purposes.

File only one Form SS-4

Generally, a sole proprietor should file only one Form SS-4 and needs only one EIN, regardless of the number of businesses operated as a sole proprietorship or trade names under which a business operates. However, if a sole proprietorship incorporates or enters into a partnership, a new EIN is required. Also, each corporation in an affiliated group must have its own EIN.

What is EIN?

Your Federal EIN number is used by the IRS to identify you as a tax paying business entity, and many people think of a Tax ID or EIN Number as their business social security number. Like a social security number, a Tax ID Number is a unique nine-digit number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service to business entities (and in some cases individuals) operating in the United States for the purposes of identification.

Who need it?

In most cases, you need a Tax ID Number under any of the following circumstances:

  • Your business is new
  • You need to pay business taxes
  • You have one or more employees
  • You want to start a line of business credit
  • You plan to open a business bank account
  • You form an LLC, Corporation, or Partnership
