Why get a federal tax ID (EIN)?

What is a federal tax ID?

A federal tax ID (officially known as an Employer Identification Number or EIN) is a unique number assigned to a business or organization by the IRS. A business uses its federal tax ID much like a person uses a Social Security number.

Who needs a federal tax ID?

The IRS requires most business entities to use a federal tax ID (EIN)—corporations, partnerships, most LLCs, and some sole proprietorships. A federal tax ID offers other benefits, even when it isn't required by the IRS. For instance, it can help protect against identity theft, and it's often a prerequisite for opening a business bank account.
