After forming a Delaware corporation or LLC, the next step is to obtain a Federal Tax ID Number (also known as an Employer Identification Number or EIN number).

Think of the EIN as the social security number for your company. It is a nine digit number that is issued by the IRS (for example, 01-2345678).


Just as a social security number is important for U.S. citizens to have, the Federal Tax ID Number is necessary for an LLC or corporation to lawfully conduct business activities, especially if you're operating a business in the United States.


All U.S. companies are required to have an EIN to open a U.S. bank account, obtain loans, hire employees and more.


The EIN is valid for the life of the company. However, if your business changes its entity type (for example, it changes from an LLC to a corporation), a new Federal Tax ID Number is typically required.

How Do You Obtain an EIN Number?


We offer an inexpensive service to assist you with obtaining a Tax ID for your company from the IRS. This fast and easy service allows you to avoid dealing with the often-confusing IRS forms and procedures, and also includes professional customer support.



If you need your EIN quickly, we offer an expedited service to U.S. clients with a valid social security number and U.S. address, in order to help you receive your Federal Tax ID even faster.


Our low EIN prices are based on several factors: whether you have a U.S. address and/or social security number and whether you would prefer an expedited service (available to U.S. clients). Please see the chart below to find the fee that applies to you. Prices start at $65.

What to Do If You Lose Your EIN


It's not uncommon for an EIN to get misplaced. If you can't locate the Federal Tax ID Number for your company, there are several ways to find it. If we obtained the EIN on behalf of your company, we can provide the number to you. Simply call us at 800-345-2677 and we'll be happy to assist you. Please be advised we will resend the number to the email address we have on file.


If we did not obtain the EIN for you, look at your company records. When you applied for an EIN, the IRS issued you a computer-generated notice that confirmed your application. Your EIN should be on this notice.


If you can't locate this notice, contact your company's bank. Your Federal Tax ID was required to open the business bank account, and the bank should be able to provide the number to you.


If you're still unable to find your EIN, you can contact the IRS directly at 800-829-4933 from 7 AM to 10 PM, Monday through Friday. Please be advised there is often a wait time to speak with a representative. Once the IRS has established you are an authorized representative for your company, they will provide you with the number.
