Federal Tax ID number – Employer Identification number
How to get a federal tax id number
FEIN number and EIN number is the same thing as what’s referred to as a federal tax id number, or a employer identification number.
A tax id number is obtained with the IRS. There are a couple ways you can get one. You can do it online on the IRS website, you can fax file, you can call the IRS directly, you can mail the application in, or you can hire a professional FEIN number obtainment service such as Northwest Registered Agent.
You can get an FEIN number yourself, but if you do it wrong, you’ll be notifying a lot of different parts of the IRS that you don’t need to, and filling out zero returns and passing paperwork back and forth with the IRS for months to come. When we get a federal tax id number for you we get it done right the first time, and will have your number sometimes by the end of the day.
You can order an EIN in addition to our incorporation service fee for $50. If you just want an EIN, you can order one by using our Federal Tax ID sign up form. If you don’t have a social security number, it’s $200. If you would also like us to file for the S corp. election for you, it’s an additional $50. People without a social security number cannot file for the S corp. election.
A federal tax ID number is necessary to establish separation of your company and yourself. If you’re operating a business and don’t have one, you’ll be asked for your social security number quite often. If you’re going to have employees, you’ll have to obtain a tax id number to make your reporting requirements with the IRS for withholding, Medicare, and social security.
