If you’ve recently applied for an EIN and have an SS4 copy from the IRS, chances are you’re looking to set up a bank or merchant account. Sometimes, these institutions may not accept the fax copy of your SS4 application. Without an official letter from the IRS that displays your company’s name, address, and EIN, you might find it challenging to open a bank account or verify your Payoneer or PayPal business profiles. But don’t worry! You simply need a 147C letter to confirm your EIN.

Here’s a simple guide (with two steps) to help you obtain that verification letter from the IRS:

  • Reach out to the IRS by calling their Business & Specialty Tax Line at 800-829-4933. (They’re available from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday.)
  • A helpful IRS representative will request some identifying details. Once you provide these, they will share your EIN number over the phone. This is as long as you’re someone authorized to get this info. Authorized persons can be a sole proprietor, partner in a partnership, a corporate officer, and so on.
