What is a Tax Id Number

What is a Tax Id Number 2/15/2012 12:00 AM  

 A tax id number is a number that a government issues to identify a business for various tax purposes. 

There are five main tax id numbers: 

  1. A federal tax id number

  2. A State Employer Tax Id Number

  3. A Sales Tax Id Number

  4. A County Tax Id Number

  5. A City Tax Id Number

 A federal tax id number is issued primarily to partnerships, corporations, and employers.   A sole owner can obtain one and use it as a business tax id number to be used in applications. For example, you are starting "Online King" an ebay online business and you have an employee.  You will need a federal tax id ( as well as a state employer number ) to pay employment tax.    

 Partnerships will need one because the partnership must be indentified independently from its partners and corporations need it as a corporation id but it can also be used as an employer number for the corporation as well as the partnership.

 

A State Employer Number  ( as well as a federal tax id number ) is required for all businesses that have or will soon hire employees .

 A sales tax id number is required in two cases:

  1. If you are a wholesaler so you can sell without charging taxes.

  2. If you are a retailer that wants to buy wholesale or sell online and collect taxes.

 

 A County Sales Tax Id is required in some states for the purpose mentioned in the state sales tax id case

A City Tax Id or business tax receipt registration number is required from most cities in the United States.

 

 

If You Are Starting a Business, You Need The Following  Tax Id Numbers:

  1.  All businesses need a business tax id registration number also called a business license.
  2. All businesses that want to buy wholesale ( i.e., buy without paying taxes), or sell retail and collect taxes,  need a State Sales Tax Id Number also called a seller's permit or resale tax id number.
  3. All businesses that have employees, need a federal tax id number ( also called an irs number) and a state employer tax id number.
  4. All businesses are advised to get a federal tax id number and use it as a business id number.  Note that a federal tax id number is also a federal employer number as well as a business id number.
  5. All corporations, partnerships, and llcs, are required to get a federal tax id number to use as a business tax id ( though, even sole proprietors can use it as a business tax id number if they so choose).

 

 

 

 

The federal tax id costs $29, and a Sales tax id starts at #39

WHAT DO I NEED 2 GET TAX ID NUMBER My husband is starting a remodeling company. My cousin and I will start the business.



What do we need LLC, or DBA?



Hello. I have recently formed an LLC in Washington State. My business includes the remodeling of condos.



Do I need to pay sales tax on materials or subcontracted services associated with the remodeling effort or does supplying my UBI number to the supplier exempt me from paying them the sales tax?



Yes. Do contractors need a sales tax license and collect sales tax on their projects?



Construction - painting, remodeling, dry wall, etc. Hello, I need to know the process and the cost to get a remodeling license for a coffee shop.



I am looking for info on what I need to start a ground keeping business that also provides window cleaning and small handyman services like drywall repair stucco repair no building or remodeling.
3/22/2021 8:16 PM


     


Yes, for remodeling, you need a sales tax ID also called a seller's permit to buy the materials wholesale.  Of course, as a construction remodeling business, you need a DBA, LLC,  or corporation, as well as a business license.  As you asked, yes, an LLC is better than filing a DBA.
