You must have an Employer Identification Number (EIN) to file a Form 2290 return. However, if 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 ten 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. If you don't have time to deal with the IRS directly, our sister product, TSNAmerica, can get an EIN for you. Call them at (803)386-0320, and they will apply for your EIN on your behalf over the phone.
