EIN Information Updates to be Submitted on Form 8822-B

Update Your EIN Information with Form 8822-B

Back in May 2013, the IRS revised its regulations that require all taxpayers with employer identification numbers (EIN) to update their information with the IRS. EINs are issued by the IRS to basically all businesses, governmental entities and certain individuals for tax filing & reporting.

The IRS has released Form 8822-B, which is for updating your business address, business location or the identity of your responsible party. Beginning January 1, 2014, any entity with an EIN must file Form 8822-B to report any change to its responsible party and must be filed within 60 days of the change. If the change occurred before 2014, the form must be filed before March 1, 2014. If you are unsure who the responsible party is, the IRS is indicating it should be left blank, or you can use n/a.

If you have questions or need help with this or other tax matters, please call us.
