Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I applied and got 2 numbers instead of one. What do I do now?
A: You can ask the IRS for an application to cancel one of the two numbers. Simply call and ask for it. Then complete the application and fax it or mail it in. If you fax it make sure you also mail it in and your tax id will be cancelled.
