Tax ID FAQs
Common EIN filing questions sent from our customers.
The IRS uses Federal EINs to identify tax-paying businesses. You might think of an EIN, which is a type of Tax ID Number, as similar to a social security number but for business and not personal identification (in most cases). An EIN is a nine-digit number assigned to business entities by the IRS. Every EIN assigned by the Internal Revenue Service is unique and it serves as a way to identify businesses in the United States.
Most businesses need an EIN or Tax ID Number. Your business entity will require an EIN in the following cases:
You operate a new business
You have to pay taxes on your business
Your business has one or more employees
You need to establish business credit
You need to open a bank account for your business
You have formed a Corporation, Partnership, or LLC

Protecting Your Social Security Number
You can think of your EIN like a social security number for your business. You as an individual have a social security number that you file your personal taxes under but your business needs an employer identification number so that the business can file its taxes with the federal government.
Now if you have any kind of business entity aside from a sole proprietorship, so we’re talking limited liability company, corporation, general partnership anything like that – you’re going to need EIN in order to file your taxes and any financial legal paperwork for that business. If you are a sole proprietor however you don’t technically need to obtain an EIN if you don’t want to since you are the business and the business is you. You don’t actually need to file your sole proprietorship business taxes separately but rather that all is done whenever you file your personal taxes at the end of the year. However, there is a really important reason that you want to consider getting an EIN if you are a sole proprietorship – and that is protection of your social security number!
A Real Life Example of a Customer Who Filed For an EIN With Us
So let’s pretend that you are an industry expert speaker. If you book a gig with a conference or event planning agency, they’re going to pay you a lump sum of money as an independent contractor. But in order to send you a 1099 tax document at the end of the year, they’re going to need to know your social security number. That means that you’re going to actually have to hand your social security number to another person and they might be trustworthy or they may not, but either way you really don’t want your social security number getting out there being seen by all these different people.
If you apply for an EIN as a sole proprietor then you can actually give that EIN to those people at the event planning agency that you can use to file future tax paperwork.
