Getting an Employee ID or Tax Identification Number for Your Lawn Care Company
If you starting a new lawn care company it can cost plenty of money getting all the proper legal documents prepared. You are both qualified and competent to complete many of the legal documents that you encounter. Most business documents that you will need are located online in a PDF format. In this blog entry I will walk you through the process of getting a Tax Identification Number.
Your Tax ID or Employer ID is like having a Social Security number for your business and allows you to pay taxes. You will need this number in conjunction with your Articles of Incorporation (Corporation) or Articles of Formation (Limited Liability Company) or DBA Certificate (Fictitious Name Filings) to get a business checking account with the business name on it. You will also use this number to build business credit for your lawn care company.
