An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is
also known as a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). A sole
proprietorship that has no employees and files no excise or pension
tax returns is the only business that does not need an employer
identification number. In this instance, the sole proprietor uses
his or her social security number as the taxpayer identification
number. To obtain an EIN, you must complete Form SS-4, Application
for Employer Identification Number. After you have completed the
Form SS-4, you can get the EIN by mail, fax or by phone.
