Employer Identification Number

Typically abbreviated as EIN, it is a unique identifier assigned by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to every tax-paying entity — companies and self-employed individuals — in the United States if they have paid employees (possibly just themselves in the case of self-employed individuals). A company may have multiple EINs or a single EIN may cover multiple locations of the same company.
