Customer Question
transactions for our class reunion...
I want an EIN number for depositing dues and completing transactions for our class reunion. We do not need a tax-exempt status.
Can we describe ourselves as a Club or a Committee?
Can our legal name on bank account be something like, “ Carver Class of 1968 Reunion”?
Would we still need to indicate a business start date and an accounting year closing month when applying?

You still would need an entity or nonprofit to get the EIN. It might be more of a hassle to form a nonprofit for one event.

Here is some info:

I did not believe I had completed my request, since I did not want any of the products they were offering me. So I closed out my browser and made an online application for EIN. I received the IRS letter with the number immediately. So I did not need any help after all.
