CORPORATION | EIN APPLICATION
A Corporation is recognized as its own individual entity, as it is separated from the people who own, control and manage it. One major difference between C and S Corporations is that the first one is subject to corporate income taxation. C-Corporations are owned by shareholders who elect a board of directors. The directors exercise good business judgment when they have to make decisions and arrangements on behalf of the corporation.
WHAT IS AN EIN NUMBER?
The Employer Identification Number (EIN), also known as the Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) or the Federal Tax Identification Number (Tax ID Number), is a unique 9 digit number assigned from the IRS.
