How to Apply for a Tax ID in Wisconsin

Wisconsin is an exciting place for new businesses. Employment rates have remained steady for the past five years, and the state boasts the country’s eight fastest growing household income statistics. In fact, the forecasted job picture indicates that Wisconsin will soon be 23rd in the nation for business and employment opportunities. As the state motto would have it, you and your new company are ready to show the world that you are “Open for Business”.

You’ve created a business plan, you have all your marketing materials prepared, and you’ve spared no expense in making sure that your business debuts with its best foot forward. All you need is a Wisconsin tax ID number. Your Wisconsin EIN, also known as a tax ID, allows you to perform such mission critical tasks as hiring new employees, filing taxes, and even opening a business bank account. A business’s tax ID is like its social security number in that it provides legitimacy, security and identity.
