Filing for an EIN: FAQs

Still have questions? Call 877-777-0450 or Live Chat with us for real-time support.

What is an EIN or Federal Tax ID?

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a special nine-digit number the IRS gives to businesses. With it, you can hire employees, open bank accounts, and ensure your business is tax-ready.

What entities need an EIN?

Aside from some sole proprietorships, almost every business requires an EIN just to function. Your business needs an EIN to:

  • Hire employees

  • Open a business bank account

  • File your taxes

  • Pay independent contractors

Even for sole proprietorships, using an EIN can also help keep your SSN secure.

Will I ever need to change my EIN?

You'll usually only need a new EIN if your business structure or management changes. For other changes, like a new business name, you might have other paperwork, but your EIN stays the same.

When should I apply for an EIN?

There is no set deadline to get an EIN. However, it's best to have one before you seek business loans, hire employees, or handle taxes.

Does an EIN expire?

No, once you obtain your specific EIN, you can keep it forever.
