Do I need to have a Federal Tax ID before I file?


S-Corporation Election Filing Service


Yes. The federal S-Corporation election application requires a Federal Tax ID, also known as an Employer Identification Number. The Federal Tax ID must be specifically for the Corporation or LLC that is applying for S-Corporation status. If you do not already have Federal Tax ID, SimpleFilings can assist you in filing for one upon request.
