Welcome to our simple online tool for obtaining your Rhode Island Federal Tax ID. Click here to start now, or learn more below.

Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island. For example, Rhode Island banks will require you to provide one before opening a business bank account.

If your answer is "Yes" to one or more of the questions below, you are in need of a Federal Tax ID in Rhode Island:

Are you opening a business bank account?
Do you have employees?
Do you operate your business as an LLC or any type of Corporation or Partnership?
Do you file employment tax returns, excise tax returns, or alcohol / tobacco / firearm tax returns?
Are you a Trust, Estate, Non-Profit, Farmers Cooperative, Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit, or Plan Administrator?
Do you have a Keogh plan?

Generally, Rhode Island businesses need a Federal Tax ID.

Establishing a new Rhode Island EIN number / Federal Tax ID is often one of the first things a new Rhode Island business does. One common reason is that most business license applications will ask for the ID.
