Form SS-4 is an essential federal document for businesses of all sizes. The form is used to apply for an employer identification number, known colloquially as an EIN. This 9-digit number, when assigned to employers, sole proprietors, corporations, partnerships, and other entities, is used for tax filing and reporting purposes. Whenever you complete a tax or wage form, you’ll need to provide the EIN. The only way to get this identifier is with Form SS-4.
Software tools from Advanced Micro Solutions support this form. More importantly, employers can use our software to help build their businesses. Our tools can help to establish good accounting practices from the start – before you even have your EIN. If you’re interested in starting your new business off on the right foot, AMS has the software you need.
Complete Form SS-4 with AMS
Form SS-4 will take some time to complete. As a new business owner, you’ll need to include information about your operation. This includes the type of entity you hope to form, the number of employees you expect to hire in the next 12 months, and your reason for applying. Complete instructions can be found on the IRS’s website. If you’re unsure whether you need an EIN, the second page of Form SS-4 has a chart to help you determine your answer.
