Now I have everything my Brand requires plus additional features that give more protection and I still saved about 30% more from what my previous carrier charged.  The IDA is my choice.

Your EIN is how the IRS identifies your company. Once you get your hands on it, you’ll use your EIN to do things that would usually require your Social Security number, so this actually protects your privacy.

What is an EIN?

Your EIN is your permanent number, and can be used immediately for most of your business needs, including:

  • Opening a bank account
  • Applying for business licenses
  • Filing a tax return by mail
  • You need an EIN in order to pay employees and to file business tax returns

One of the IBO’s told me that IDA was what we needed. The insurance and paperwork can be overwhelming, but working with the IDA made it quick and easy. And it was done right.

To be considered a Partnership, LLC, Corporation, S Corporation, Non-profit

To be considered a Partnership, LLC, Corporation, S Corporation, Non-profit, etc. you must must obtain an EIN.

If you start a business without an EIN, you will be considered a sole proprietorship, and your personal social security number will be used on any tax documents.

Financial institutions such as banks, credit unions, and brokerage houses will not open an account for a corporation without an EIN.

Since all corporations – including ones with zero dollars in income yet – must file at least a federal income tax return, a corporation operating or incorporated in the United States generally must obtain an EIN anyway either before or after being issued its charter.

EINs do not expire. Once an EIN has been issued to an entity, it will not be reissued.

Knowing that IDA specializes in the Independent Distributor market and the way that they worked with me… I knew immediately that I was in the right place. No one compares!

Who Needs an EIN?

According to the IRS, your business must have an EIN if any of these criteria apply:

  • Your business operates as a corporation or a partnership
  • You have employees
  • You withhold taxes on income other than wages paid to a nonresident alien
  • You have a Keogh Plan
  • You’re involved with certain organizations listed on the IRS website
  • Beyond filing taxes, you may also need an EIN to:
  • Open a bank account in the name of your business;
  • Apply for a credit card in the name of your business;
  • Apply for business permits; or Furnish independent contractors a Form 1099
  • [PDF]. (Check with your accountant or tax professional.)

If you are an IO you have to treat like a business, not just getting a paycheck from an employer. That’s one of the reasons we like IDA and their all-in-one solution. They have it all under one roof.

It Starts With IDA Membership

Your IDA Membership includes the filing of your EIN or Employer Identification Number with the IRS.

This is an important item that is necessary for your formation to be complete and for you to move ahead in the purchase process for your route. If done incorrectly it can cause delays and is difficult to correct. IDA’s experienced staff will take care of this for you.

The IDA is your single source solution for everything needed to make sure your new business is formed correctly and quickly.
