Employer Identification Numbers for Tax-Exempt Organizations

Tax-exempt organizations are generally required to have and use an employer identification number (EIN).  Tax-exempt organizations must use their EIN if required to file employment tax returns or give tax statements to employees or annuitants. (Note: The tax-exempt organization should have only one EIN. Once the organization receives an EIN, the organization will use it from one year to the next.)
