What is an EIN? What is a Tax ID Number? Are they the same thing?

When it comes to federal taxes and the requirements of businesses and entities, it can get very confusing. Gov Doc Filing aims to simplify the process for you by being your go-to resource of tax, IRS, and business information, as well as help you with the filing processes of creating and obtaining an EIN number and the next steps in business formation.

There are a few different names that all refer to the same 9 digit number that all entities must obtain from the IRS in order to start a business. The IRS assigned these numbers through an application process, and the format of the number is like this: 12-3456789. Below are the acronyms and names for this IRS assigned 9 digit number:

  • Tax ID Number
  • TIN – stands for Tax ID Number
  • EIN – stands for Employer Identification Number
  • FEIN – stands for Federal Employer Identification Number
  • Federal Tax ID
  • Federal TIN – stands for Federal Tax ID Number

The most common names are EIN and Tax ID, and again they are the same thing, even if you do not have to plan to have any employees. EINs/Tax ID numbers are used to identify a business entities, and additional entities like Estates or Trusts, similar to the way you, as an individual, would be identified by your social security number. Businesses generally are required to have an EIN.

Choosing the proper entity is important and can determine many things, including how much you get taxed on profits, how you or your company will be treated in a lawsuit, and the type of bank account you’ll be able to open.
