Apply for a Sole Proprietor Tax ID (EIN) Number

Sole Proprietorships are the most basic and common form of a business. A Sole Proprietorship is an unincorporated business owned and run by one individual with no distinction between the business and you, the owner. You are entitled to all profits and are responsible for all your business’s debts, losses and liabilities. You do not have to take any formal action to form a sole proprietorship. As long as you are the only owner, this status automatically comes from your business activities.
