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

You can call the IRS to search for your EIN by calling the Business & Specialty Tax Line at ***-***-****. The hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday. An IRS representative 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.

If you do not have an EIN, you can then apply for one.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
