Federal Tax ID Number Online

The Federal Tax ID Number is also known as the (EIN) Employer Identification Number. It is a 9 digit number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to identify tax accounts of employers and certain other who have no employees. In the past you had to file a Form SS-4 but the entire procedure can now be done free online by going to the IRS website. After typing in (keyword "EIN") you will find the EIN application in an interview style format. It is significant for sole proprietors to recognize that you may only have one EIN, no matter how many different businesses you operate.
