Wyoming LLC Tax ID Number

How do I get a federal tax identification number for my company?

You can get a Federal Tax Identification Number for your business in one of two ways.

  1. Hire us.

    Hire Buffalo Registered Agents to acquire a Federal Tax Identification Number (also known as your Employer Identification Number or EIN) for you. This saves you the hassle of having to deal directly with the IRS. We deal with the IRS every day, and we know the process back and front.

  2. Do it yourself.

    First, apply to get your Employer Identification Number online through the IRS website. Once you complete the online application, you will be issued an EIN immediately. To utilize this service, the principal officer, general partner, grantor, owner, trustor, etc. must have a valid Taxpayer Identification Number (Social Security Number, EIN, or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number).

    You may also apply by fax or regular mail by filling out the Form SS-4 and faxing or mailing it to the proper address.

    International applicants may call between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time Monday through Friday to acquire an EIN. The person making the call must be authorized to receive the EIN and answer all questions concerning the Form SS-4. The number is 267-941-1099 (not a toll-free number).

    Non-US citizens must mail, fax, or call to acquire a Federal Tax Identification Number.

Why do I need an EIN?

Federal Tax Identification Numbers allow the IRS to identify business entities for tax purposes. For your business and your employees to be properly taxed, the IRS must be able to identify your business.

In some cases, particular banks also require you to provide an EIN to open a business bank account.

What does it cost to get a Federal Tax Identification Number?

If you choose our standard LLC or Corporation Formation Package, you can add a Federal Tax ID to your LLC or incorporation package for only $50. The total cost for this package is $224 for an LLC or $226 for a corporation (including BOI report filing).

If you choose our Firm LLC Formation Package, the Federal Tax ID is part of the service. The total cost for this package is $400.

You can elect to get your Federal Tax ID from the IRS yourself. The IRS does not charge for this.

I am not a US citizen. Can I still obtain a Federal Tax Identification Number for my company?

Yes. You may not, however, utilize the online application service.

What is the difference between a Federal Tax Number, EIN, and FEIN?
