How Can I Check My TIN Status?
Before undertaking many business processes, including filing for taxes, setting up bank accounts, hiring employees and applying for permits and licenses, businesses need a tax ID number, also known as an employer identification number or EIN. In many cases, a business receives the number within an hour of an online application. In certain scenarios, such as applying outside of regular business hours, one might experience a delay. If this happens, you might wish to check the status to see when you can expect your number.
Checking the Status of Your EIN Application
The way in which you check the status of your EIN depends on how you applied for it. Generally, you need to check with the service you utilized, which might include the IRS directly. With IRS-EIN-Tax-ID Filing Services, customers can check the status of a new TIN application through a special website by inputting the email associated with the order. Alternatively, customers have the option to connect with customer service through the phone or email. You can also contact the IRS directly, but you will need to have all the information about your application before doing so.
Checking the Existence of an EIN
Unless a business undergoes certain changes, then the tax identification number they have is the same for the life of the business. Sometimes, a business might have some slow periods, and the owners might find they no longer have ready access to their EIN number when they need it. You can check for an existing EIN for your business to see if you need to apply for a new number. To do this, you can review your business’ old tax record or banking records. The IRS also has a tool for finding TIN numbers.
When working with IRS-EIN-Tax-ID, you can easily check TIN number status and that of your order. There are other options for tax ID lookup. Contact IRS EIN Tax ID Filing Service to discuss this and other questions you might have about applying for your EIN.
