Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
If you previously applied for and received an EIN for your business, but have since misplaced the confirmation letter the IRS sends out (computer-generated notice that was issued by the IRS when you applied for your EIN),
you can ask the IRS to search your EIN by calling the Business & Specialty Tax Line at(###) ###-#### ***** hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday. An assistor will ask you for identifying information and provide the number to you over the telephone, as long as you are a person who is authorized to receive it.
They will even fax you a confirmation of your EIN.
Please let me know if you need clarification. If you do not then a positive rating is appreciated so I get credit for the response. (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES)
