Q.Is every business required to have an employer identification number ( EIN )?

A.If you start a new business, the likelihood is that you will want an employer identification number (EIN), even if one is not required. An employer identification number (EIN) operates as your business' social security number. You are required to have a federal and state EIN number if you have, or plan to have, employees within a six month period. The EIN is a number assigned to a business so that withholdings (federal and state income tax, social security and Medicare taxes, unemployment insurance, and other taxes) can be remitted to the IRS and state tax authorities.
