Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a must for every taxpayer to file their Form 2290 return. The EIN is used by the IRS to keep track of the business tax records. Make sure to use only your EIN to file your Form 2290 return and not your Social Security Number (SSN).

If you do not have an EIN, click here to apply online, or contact 1-800-829-4933. If you do not have time to deal with the IRS directly, our sister product, TSNAmerica can get an EIN for you! Call them at (803)386-0320.

Please keep in mind that it may take up to ten business days for a new EIN to become active in the IRS E-file system.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our 100% US-based support team by phone, email, or live chat.
