    If You Are Starting a Business, You May Need a Tax Id Number Number

    When Starting a Business, all businesses, including home based businesses, internet businesses, ebay, online web sites, professional practices, contractors or any other business, in New Jersey are required to identify their business with one of two numbers: either a Social Security number or an EIN or employer identification tax id number.

    A Social Security number can be used on all your government tax id number forms and other tax id number official documents, if you are a sole proprietor, but most small business advisors recommend that you apply for a Federal Tax Id Number (EIN) and use that number instead.

    Here is where you will need to use this federal Tax Id Number : All corporations, employers, and those that need to use a business Tax Id Number # instead of their SS#, are required to have it.  

    Also, in tax resale certificates and some other business tax forms , you are  required to provide this number.
