Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
Are you an employer or you are an employee?
Did you ever applied for the tax ID?
What state do you live?
we have a federal EIN but not sure where to locate a state id number i need it to put on the w-2's
In most states - you may use the same ID
An IRS notice CP 575 was sent when when a Employer ID Number (FEIN) was issues.
What state do you locate?
New york so i can uses my federal tax id? i have a stae unemployemt number is XXXXX what i should use
You might have a state tax ID in NY for the collection of sales tax. Do not use unemployemt number on the W2.
we dont colect sales tax
In this case - just use your federal tax ID.
Additional Note - seems that you may use NY state ID which you are using to remit SUTA taxes in the place of the state ID on the W2 form - sorry for confusion.
But if you use the federal ID in both places - that will be accepted as well.
Sorry for confusion.
