EIN Confirmation Letter

You have finally formed your new business and obtained an Employer Identification Number (EIN). Everything seems right and be in a full spate. However, your bank requires you to have an EIN confirmation letter issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). What should you do now?

For every EIN application that is done, an EIN confirmation letter is sent out by the IRS. It is called CP 575. The IRS mails the letter to your address listed in the SS-4 application within eight to ten weeks of giving your company a Federal Tax Identification Number.

Sometimes, an EIN confirmation letter is required when you open a business bank account for your company. A vendor also may want to see the document.

Usually, people misplace this letter and furthermore, many international business owners seem to have never received a confirmation letter- it gets lost during the international transit.

If one of these scenarios happens to you, don’t worry; If you do not have an EIN confirmation letter, there is a solution. You can contact the IRS directly at (267) 941-1099 and receive your replacement confirmation letter, known as 147C.

If we obtained your EIN confirmation letter on your behalf, please feel free to request that your replacement confirmation letter 147C be sent to our address. As soon as we receive the fax, you can be sure that we will forward it to you by email.

Unfortunately, we are not authorized to contact the IRS on behalf of your company due to a strict privacy policy. When you contact the IRS over the phone, be prepared for long waiting times. According to our customers’ previous experience, calling early in the morning can make waiting times shorter. So, it would be better for you to call around 9 in the morning.

If you have any questions about obtaining an EIN number or replacement confirmation letter 147C for your Delaware company, please do not hesitate to contact us.
