The Employer Identification Number (EIN), also known as the Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) or the Federal Tax Identification Number, is a unique nine-digit number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to business entities operating in the United States for the purposes of identification.

How do you get an EIN?

  3. You are limited to one EIN per responsible party per day.

Step 2: Understand the Online Application
