Frequently Asked Questions (3)

What is an EIN?
An employer identification number ('EIN'), also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, is used by the IRS to identify a business entity. Think of it like a Social Security Number, but for businesses.
Is my company required to have an EIN?
Probably, yes. Your company is required to get an EIN if it is either taxed as a corporation or a partnership (which generally is the case for all corporations and LLCs with more than one owner), or falls into a number of other categories (see the IRS website on this topic, here: https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/do-you-need-an-ein for a full list).

Basically, it's free and fast, so you should probably get one unless you're sure you don't need one.
Is there a fee to get an EIN?
No! The IRS issues EINs for free, and unlike some other websites we won't name (hint: it rhymes with BeagleGroom), your Startomatic subscription includes everything we offer, including getting an EIN.
