Employer Identification Number (EIN)

All businesses other than sole proprietorships need an EIN, whether or not they have employees. The IRS issues these numbers to legal entities such as corporations, partnerships, estates, non-profits, etc. so they can report the employment taxes they withhold and/or pay. In addition, the EIN is used on a business’s annual informational tax return if it’s not required to pay Federal and State income taxes or on its tax return if it is. An EIN sometimes is called a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) or a Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN). You can apply for an EIN online from the IRS or use a third-party provider like Gov Doc Filing, which often simplifies and expedites the process.

Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)

Individuals who must have an identification number for tax filing purposes, but are not eligible to receive an SSN or an EIN, apply to the IRS for an Individual Taxpayer ID Number (ITIN). It cannot be used to apply for Social Security or other benefits, nor for job applications.
