How long will it take to receive my Federal Tax ID?


Federal Tax ID (EIN) Filing Service


The ID can be used immediately for most of your business needs including opening a bank account, applying for local business licenses, and filing a tax return by mail.

However it can take up to 15 days after receiving your ID to receive official documents in the mail from the IRS, which indicate that your ID has become part of the Internal Revenue Service's permanent records. You must wait until this occurs before you can file an electronic tax return, make an electronic tax payment, or pass an Internal Revenue Service Taxpayer Identification Number matching program.
