Whether you are a Trucker, Business Owner, or Tax Professional, you must have an Employee Identification Number (EIN) in order to file Form 2290. It is a unique 9-digit number assigned to every business in the US. If you don’t have an EIN, you must apply for one. Click here to apply online, or contact 1-800-829-4933. 

Please be informed that your Social Security Number (SSN) is not your EIN. You cannot use your SSN when you are filing Form 2290.
