Download the SS-4 form from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), otherwise known as the ‘Application for Employer Identification Number’, to allow an entity or sole proprietor to conduct business transactions. The entity must have been filed or in the process of being filed with the State (usually the Secretary of State’s office) and the number is generated by the IRS and sent back to the applicant in the standard mail.
For help filing the form the applicant should seek the Adobe PDF or HTML instructions.
After the form has been completed it may either be faxed to 1(859) 669-5987 or sent in the standard mail to the following address: Internal Revenue Service Center, Attn: EIN International Operation, Cincinnati, OH 45999
An applicant may also go to the IRS Website and obtain a number during their standard operating hours Monday thru Friday (7:00AM to 10:00PM).
