Who Can Apply for an EIN Online?

Contrary to popular belief, businesses and nonprofit entities aren’t the only organizations that need an Employer Identification Number. Businesses owned by sole proprietors must obtain an EIN if they have employees or are required to file excise or pension plan taxes. Besides sole proprietorships, several other types of organizations can apply for an EIN:

• Partnerships
• Limited liability companies
• Corporations
• Nonprofit groups
• Church-controlled organizations
• Trusts
• Estates of deceased individuals
