In San Diego, California, a new business must get a nine-digit employer identification number (EIN) from the Internal Revenue Service if it either pays wages to one or more employees or files pension or excise tax returns. An EIN is like a Social Security number for a business. It is used when filing a federal tax return, as well as for correspondence with the IRS or the Social Security Administration.
IRS Form SS-4 is an application for an EIN, with information on how to apply by mail or by telephone. The IRS now has a toll-free telephone number for getting an EIN: (800-829-4933).
