Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

An EIN is issued by the IRS, not any state. The EIN belongs to the entity forever, whether active or not.

As to your corporations, if they were formed in Colorado, you can check their status at the following link:

What was the message when you applied for an EIN today?

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
