If you previously applied for and received an Employer Identification Number (EIN) for your business, but have since misplaced it, ask 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 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. Examples of an authorized person include, but are not limited to, a sole proprietor, a partner in a partnership, a corporate officer, a trustee of a trust, or an executor of an estate.

They can then send you the letter which verifies that and you should keep that letter.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
