What this means

I'm a sole proprietor on my second new business. Why can I not get a new Federal Tax ID?


Federal Tax ID (EIN) Filing Service


A Sole Proprietor can have as many different businesses as they want for as long or as short as they want, but the Internal Revenue Service will only issue one Federal Tax ID for all of them. For example, if a Sole Proprietor started business A in 1980 and got a Federal Tax ID for it but never used it, and then started the completely unrelated business B today... business B will use the same Federal Tax ID as was issued for business A in 1980, since both businesses are Sole Proprietorships under the same Sole Proprietor.
