You must have an Employer Identification Number (EIN) to file a Form 2290 return. In case you do not have your EIN, you can apply for it directly with the IRS by clicking here or contacting 1-800-829-4933.

However, it'll take up to 10 business days for your new EIN to become active. Your Form 2290 return will be accepted by the IRS only after your EIN has become active.
