Church & Non-Profit Explained (Part 2)

EIN stands for Employee Identification Number. Applying for an EIN will be your first step in forming your church. You will need to complete IRS Form SS-4, which is the Application for an Employer Identification Number. You can apply online by going to Within five minutes, the IRS will send you an acknowledgment of your application via email. Within several weeks, the IRS will send you a hard copy SS-4 Acknowledgment Letter, which will include the Employer Identification Number, known as the “EIN” (this number is not a tax-exempt number – it is the church’s unique identifier in the IRS’s records, similar to an individual’s social security number).

Immediately file the Letter in the corporate “Minutes Book”.
