As our clients (attorneys, CPAs, and licensed professionals) are aware, every corporation and/or LLC needs an Employer Identification Number or EIN (also known as Federal Employer Identification Number or FEIN) when it comes time to file tax returns and/or serve other identification purposes. An EIN is the corporate equivalent of an individual’s Social Security Number and is issued to corporations and businesses who have to pay withholding taxes on employees.
EINs are necessary for many employers, sole proprietors, corporations, partnerships, non-profit organizations, trusts and estates, government agencies, certain individuals and other business entities. The IRS uses this number to identify taxpayers that are required to file various business tax returns. Individuals who are employers may choose to either obtain an EIN or use their Social Security Number for the purpose of reporting taxes withheld on behalf of their employees. An EIN is not considered sensitive information and is freely distributed by many businesses by way of publications and the internet.
