Your social security number acts as one of the most important and personal means of identifying yourself when dealing with businesses or the government. Similarly, a company’s employer identification number (EIN) is a unique number assigned to businesses by the government that’s used for tax purposes and more.

Despite how important an EIN, it’s fairly common for business owners to lose track of theirs — after all, it’s mostly used only on government forms. Fortunately, there are many ways to find your EIN if you’ve misplaced it. Some are even likely to be found in your own place of business, but if all else fails, there are also outside organizations you can contact to find the number. One of these methods is sure to help you locate your number.
