What is an Employer Identification Number?

Your Employer ID Number is basically your social security number for you as a business person. An EIN is required by IRS so you may file your 2290 Heavy Highway Use Tax Payment. Your EIN is also necessary when you file your IFTA quarterly reports and register your truck. Many individuals have used their personal Social Security Numbers to file these payments. Once you file these documents, your social security number becomes more readily available to the general public. By obtaining an Employer Identification Number, you no longer use your SSN when you provide information pertaining to your business.
