Online EIN application now available

Taxpayers can now request an employer identification number (EIN) through a Web-based system that instantly processes requests and generates EINs. The EIN application on www.irs.gov is interactive and asks questions tailored to the type of entity the taxpayer is establishing. It also gives taxpayers the option to view, print, and save the confirmation notice, as opposed to waiting for it by mail. Third parties authorized by the taxpayer can be provided with the EIN, but cannot view, print or save the confirmation notice, which instead is mailed to the taxpayer.
