Your Employer Identification Number (EIN) is your federal tax identification number. If asked to provide proof of EIN, please ensure your entire EIN number is shown in addition to your business name. The EIN and business name should match the information provided on the application. The following documents will yield your entity’s EIN:
- EIN Confirmation letter from the IRS (CP 575)
- EIN Verification letter from the IRS (147C).
- EIN screenshot from the IRS Portal
- Prior Year’s Tax Return
If you are a disregarded entity or a sole proprietorship, you may be using your Social Security Number (SSN) for your business. Please refer to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to determine if your entity needs an EIN.
