An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, and is used to identify a business entity.
To file form 2290, the IRS requires an EIN. You can apply online with the IRS to receive your EIN.
Name Control: A name control is a sequence of characters derived from a taxpayer's name that is used by IRS in processing their return. It's important that your Name Control and Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) match what the IRS has on file. A name control is established by the IRS when the taxpayer requests an Employer Identification Number (EIN).
You can call the IRS to verify your Name Control by contacting the Business & Specialty Help Line at 1-800-829-4933
If you have recently applied for and received your EIN from the IRS, keep in mind that it takes about 15 days to be entered in the e-file system. The IRS will reject Form 2290s during this time.
The IRS mails an information package to users about IRS 2290 filing and the tax period. This notice includes the Name Control for your business.
