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.

Federal Tax IDs can go by many names in South Carolina, including:

Employer Identification Number (EIN)
Federal Employer ID Number (FEIN)
Federal ID Number (FIN)
Federal Tax Number (FTN)
Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)
Federal Taxpayer Identification Number (FTIN)
Or often times, just Tax ID or Tax Number

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.
