If you are starting a business or establishing a trust, you need an Employer ID Number (EIN). Now, thanks to IRS-EIN-Tax-ID, it is easier than ever to apply for a federal Tax ID number online. Just follow the three simple steps on the IRS-EIN website, and you will receive your EIN by email on the same business day. Once you receive your EIN, you can open a business bank account and take other important steps to starting your business.
You might be wondering if it is safe to apply for an EIN online. It is reasonable to be cautious when it comes to Internet privacy, but your information is completely safe with IRS-EIN.
IRS-EIN Will Not Share Your Information
When you fill out your application for an EIN, IRS-EIN sends the information to the IRS and no one else. The site guards the privacy of your information at every step of the process. The site has a “check status of an EIN” function, but it is impostor-proof. You really have to prove that you are you before you can see your information.
Why Check the Status of Your EIN Application?
You may wish to check the status of your EIN application because the IRS can take a few weeks to send you your EIN. The IRS-EIN site will send you an email with your EIN the same day you apply. You can start using it immediately, but it will take two weeks before the IRS can add the new EIN to its records. Four weeks after you apply, the IRS will send you a physical letter documenting the registration of your EIN. Many banks will let you open a business account or take out a business loan before you receive this letter.
