Who can use this

You can use a business tax account if you have this type of business:

Sole proprietor: If you’re a sole proprietor who files business tax returns with an employer identification number (EIN).

Note: A limited liability company (LLC) that reports business income on Form 1040 Schedule C can’t use a business tax account at this time.

Partnership or S corporation: If you’re an individual partner or individual shareholder, you can access a business account if you have both:

  • A Social Security number or an individual tax ID number (ITIN)
