How to Obtain an FEIN Number

This article will help you determine whether or not you need an FEIN number for your business and explain the process of obtaining one.

An FEIN (Federal Employer Identification Number) is needed if you operate as a corporation or partnership, have staff or a Keogh plan, or file employment or excise taxes. It’s the equivalent of a social security number for a business and it’s the number the IRS uses to identify your company. This article was created for business owners and explains the process of obtaining an FEIN as well as what you’ll need this number for once you have it.
