Answers to questions about Employer Identification Numbers are best researched on the IRS.GOV website or your state's tax authority's website.

When do you apply for a FEIN - before or after you apply for incorporation?

When you are considering being in business is a good time to apply. If you already have employees, it's kind of hard not to already have one.

Is it possible, at least in theory, that an SSN for an individual, can be exactly the same as a FEIN for a business? Does/could this create any conflicts that you are aware of?

Technically, the two are different. A sole proprietor with no employees is encouraged by the IRS to use only his SSN, but there is nothing to stop him from obtaining a FEIN. If a business is incorporated, operates as a partnership, LLP, or LLC, it will need a FEIN separate from any principal's SSN or TIN, whether there are any employees or not.



A non-US citizen/non-legal resident here on a visa who wants to conduct some sort of business in the US (such as a bank or brokerage account) needs a personal TIN (taxpayer ID number) to be able to report personal taxable events (income, capital gains, etc), especially those subject to "backup withholding", in addition to a FEIN as a business owner.



A TIN and a SSN are also not the same thing, although they mostly do the same things . . . allow one to report income for tax purposes -- the single biggest difference being the non-citizen/non-legal resident is not supposed to pay into Social Security/Medicare, because they are not supposed to be enrolled in those systems.



TINs are also issued to non-natural entities such as charitable foundations and trusts for the purpose of reporting taxable revenue or distributions, if any. Obviously, these entities have no need for Social Security or Medicare.

If you have applied to the IRS for a FEIN, you would be given a number with the following numeric format: XX-XXXXXXX .



If you've never applied for a FEIN, you do not have one.

IRS regulations require a Form W-9 to be filled out by any vendor who is expected to be paid $600 or more in a tax year. This information is used to provide the required Form 1099 at year-end.



If you are not getting cooperation from the vendor, you should do one of two things: (1) write the vendor a very strongly worded letter indicating that you are ready to make a complaint to the local field office of the IRS if they fail to return the enclosed Form W-9 within 5 business days. If they don't comply, then file the complaint.



Or (2) bypass the letter to the vendor and go directly to the IRS field office with the matter.



I would recommend (1) as your first course of action.

FEIN is the abbreviation for:



Federal Employer Identification Number



It is required of any "person" who must file a payroll tax return and deliver Form W2 to employees. That could be an individual or a business (sole proprietorship, partnership, LLP, LLC, or corporation). It includes governments and government agencies, as well as colleges, universities, and churches, synagogues, and mosques.

Can I use my already existing FEIN to start another business?



I currently have a business license (LLC) in the state of Hawaii... I would like to start another LLC, possibly in a different state, relating to a completely different type of business, and was wondering if I need to obtain a new FEIN number for the new business.

Yes . . . unless you intend to commingle everything and get yourself in trouble with all manner of taxing authorities.



Two separate businesses . . . two separate FEINs.
