EIN Confirmation Letter


By Brett Melson Monday, August 10, 2015

Your new company has been formed, the Federal Tax ID Number (also known as an Employer Identification Number or EIN) has been obtained andEIN confirmation letter everything seems to be in place, until your bank asks for confirmation of the EIN issued by the IRS. Now what?

 

The IRS sends out a confirmation letter for every EIN application it processes. This EIN confirmation letter is called CP 575, and the IRS mails it to the address listed on the SS-4 application within eight to ten weeks of issuing your company a Federal Tax ID Number.  

 

Sometimes your company’s bank or a vendor may request to see this confirmation letter. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for people to misplace the letter; in addition, it seems as if many international business owners never receive the confirmation letter—it appears to get lost in transit.

 

If either of these scenarios happens to you, don’t worry—there is a solution if you don’t have possession of the EIN confirmation letter. You can contact the IRS directly at (267) 941-1099 and request a replacement confirmation letter called a 147C letter; the IRS will fax it to you upon request.

 

If we obtained the EIN number on behalf of your company, feel free to request that the 147C letter be faxed to us at (302) 645-1280. Once the fax has been received, we will email the letter to you as a courtesy.

 

Unfortunately, we are not able to contact the IRS on behalf of your company due to its strict privacy policies. Be prepared for lengthy hold times when you call the IRS; our clients have reported that hold times tend to be shorter the earlier in the morning you call, so try calling as close to 9 AM as possible.  

 

If you have any questions about obtaining an EIN for your Delaware company or requesting a 147C letter from the IRS, feel free to contact us with your questions at 800-345-2677 or info@delawareinc.com.
