One of the companies that work for my company is not giving me their Federal ID to report their income. Is there a way to find out the Federal Tax ID (EIN) of a company?
Hello! Thank you for your question today. My goal is to provide you with the information you seek.

Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) I will provide you with honest information and not necessarily to tell you might be hoping to hear.

Sorry you are dealing with this situation. If it is a publicly traded company the EIN would be listed on its 10ks or SEC filings. That database can actually be located through the SEC's EDGAR database:

If it is not a publicly traded company unfortunately, the only way to obtain the EIN is too use a fee based search provider such as Fiensearch: This is the most likely the most economical fee based search engine.

I apologize that this was probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. However, it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.

All my best & encouragement.
