You can easily get an EIN from the IRS website for free! There’s absolutely no reason you should pay a service to get an EIN as it literally takes a few minutes to successfully apply and obtain for an EIN for your business.

Whether your business is a corporation, a LLC or a sole proprietorship, as long as you have the necessary information, the process is quick, simple and painless.

You would want to talk to a CPA to get some advice on tax implications if you’re an established businesses or if you already have business income.
