When I Get My EIN Number, What Can I Do With It?

Back to FAQs

Your Employer Identification Number (EIN) or Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is an essential component of the Internal Revenue Service’s tax filing and administration system. The IRS requires most types of entities or private citizens involved with certain activities to obtain an EIN or tax ID. Once you’ve used IRS EIN Tax ID Filing Service to complete an EIN number application and have received your new ID number, you’ll be ready to file many kinds of forms, engage in certain types of financial transactions and even conduct business.

How to Use Your EIN

Obtaining a new or different business EIN number is a necessary step for many businesses, nonprofit groups and private citizens managing certain types of fiduciary or legal entities. First, an EIN enables sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies and corporations to perform several important functions:

• Complete tax returns and other IRS forms
• Make tax payments
• Use electronic taxpayer identification number (TIN) matching tools
• Open financial accounts
• Apply for vendor permits and licenses
• Establish a business credit history

Additionally, an EIN allows nonprofit organizations and church-controlled groups to perform these same functions. Individuals administering a deceased person’s estate or trust can also file tax forms and manage fiduciary and legal affairs with a unique tax ID number, since the state or trust exists as a separate legal entity.
