What is an EIN?

After your business is formed, you’ll need to apply for Employer Identification Number (EIN). An EIN is a nine-digit number that is issued by the IRS and used to uniquely identify employer tax accounts. Think of it as how a Social Security Number (SSN) identifies an individual, only an EIN is less sensitive. Our filing experts make filing your EIN application quick and easy.

Much like a Social Security Number would identify an individual or sole proprietor (taxpayer identification number), an EIN will be used by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to identify a business entity for taxation. Unlike SSNs, They are considered to be less sensitive, so they are often used by entrepreneurs as their identification on government forms and official documents, since there is much less risk of identity theft.

FAQs

Q 1) What if I don’t hire employees? Do I still need an EIN?

-Once you have incorporated your business, it becomes its own legal entity with you as its employee. You may still use your SSN to identify your business, but you must also have an EIN so the IRS can track the business, ensure it collects payroll tax, and stay in compliance. If you plan to run your business as a partnership, you will also be required to have an EIN because the social security numbers of both partners cannot be used as identifiers. If you are unsure, you can get more information about the requirements on the IRS website.

Q 2) Does a single member LLC benefit from an EIN?

-A single member LLC can also file for an EIN for their business, although generally it is not required. A single member LLC is considered a disregarded entity by the IRS and is treated as a sole proprietorship, so all income is passed to the owners. However, you can use either your SSN or EIN when receiving 1099-MISC income. Just make sure to report all these 1099-MISCs under your Schedule C since they all relate to your LLC business income.. This can provide added protection for your SSN, especially in cases where you may be providing W-9s to multiple businesses. If your LLC purchases property, or pays excise taxes, you may also use your EIN.

Q 3) When should I file an EIN?

-The best time to file an EIN for your business is after it has been legally formed. When you apply for an EIN, the IRS assumes that your business is already in existence.
