Generally, South Carolina businesses need a Federal Tax ID.
Establishing a new South Carolina EIN number / Federal Tax ID is often one of the first things a new South Carolina business does. One common reason is that most business license applications will ask for the ID.
South Carolina Federal Tax ID / EIN numbers are valid in all fifty states. Many states issue "state tax IDs", which can go by names like sales tax number, resale number, and wholesale number. But any South Carolina business that requires a state tax ID will also require the nine-digit South Carolina Federal Tax ID that you can acquire right here.
South Carolina Federal Tax ID numbers are issued by the IRS in a nine-digit format such as 12-3456789.
They uniquely identify your business to the government in the same way that Social Security Numbers do for individuals. But various non-government vendors will also request the number during routine commerce in South Carolina. For example, South Carolina banks will require you to provide one before opening a business bank account.
