And if you are new to E-fling one common issue that a tax filer faces is the EIN.  While majority of truckers have a registered EIN or tax ID many still seem to file using their social security number. Well is it not something that can be used ?  We wouldn’t say no but an SSN can be used only while paper filing at the IRS office directly or manually by mailing the documents to the IRS office. Since the IRS offices are closed due to covid-19 paper filing is out of the option and hence one would not be able to use it in filing a 2290 return electronically. So what do you do in this case?

Here are some modes of acquiring an EIN.

EIN Via Online:

With the technology growing rapidly, you can sit wherever you are, and apply for EIN in minutes through the online portal. Visit and click on Businesses, then click on Employer Identification Numbers (it’s on the left-hand side of the page under “Topics”) for more information. Its method has proved to be the easiest method to apply EIN and this won’t consume much of your time either.

EIN Via Phone Call:

If you don’t wish to choose online methodologies, you can apply for an EIN through a phone call. Dial 1-800-829-4933 and explain to them about your new application for EIN. To keep you informed, this method is slightly time-consuming and you cannot e-file your tax return immediately since IRS takes some time to update the new EINs in their database. Wait for a while, 15-20 days, and try e-filing. If your return is not acknowledged, check with IRS.

EIN via Mail: Another method in the list is applying EIN through the mail and you will receive your EIN within 4 weeks. You need to ensure that form SS-4 (PDF) contains all of the required information. If it is determined that the entity needs a new EIN, you will be assigned the appropriate procedures for the entity type and mailed the same.

But some customers have raised questions stating that they do not own a business and how to get an EIN, well one can actually register an EIN under his personal name and file 2290 using it, and it’s not necessary that only businesses can have an EIN. Also if you are leased to a company you can also use the company’s name and EIN to file your HVUT form 2290.
