Lost My Tax Id Number

There are ways to get the numbers but, at least with respect to your Federal tax ID number, you can't get it online from the IRS.

For the Federal tax ID number, you can call the IRS on their Business and Specialty Tax Line.  Be ready to provide them with identifying information because they will not just give your information to anyone who asks.

There are also places you may look in your own records.  First, look for a confirmation letter from the IRS that should contain the FEIN. If you have opened a bank account or sent a customer a W-9 form, you will have provided that information and may be able to locate it there.

As for a business license number, the same is probably true.  Some states and local governments may have the ID information online, but most do not.  You will probably need to call and talk to someone.  If you do that before you call the IRS, you may find that you also supplied your Federal ID number on your local business license application, so you may be able to get both numbers in the same place.

Good luck!
