Florida and other States: Single Member LLC’s – 2 EIN’s required by IRS if there are employees

A recent update to the IRS website could affect you if your Jacksonville Florida Business is a Limited Liability Company.

Important information for Single Member Limited Liability Companies (LLC) who have or will have employees within the next 12 months:

IRS regulations require a single member limited liability company that is (1) owned by one individual and (2) has or will have employees within the next 12 months to have two EINs. One EIN is assigned to the individual owner (as a sole proprietor) and one is assigned to the LLC. If you do not already have an EIN as a sole proprietor, you cannot use the online EIN application to apply for the LLC EIN. Please call the Business and Specialty Tax Line at (800) 829-4933 between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time and an assistor will take your information and assign you the two required EINs. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
