I filed for a federal Tax ID a week ago and it hasnt arrived in the mail just yet.

But I want to change the name that was on the registartion since I just realized there is a better name.

So how do I go by doing this?

Just call them?

Thanks

Ben.

This is from the IRS website. Look over this and it should answer your question (assuming you are a sole propietor).

Sole Proprietors

You will be required to obtain a new EIN if the following statements are true. Refer to "How to Apply for an EIN."


  • You are subject to a bankruptcy proceeding.
  • You incorporate.
  • You take in partners and operate as a partnership.
  • You purchase or inherit an existing business that you operate as a sole proprietorship.
You will not be required to obtain a new EIN if the following statements are true.


  • You change the name of your business.
  • You change your location and add other locations.
  • You operate multiple businesses.
Here is a page with good information regarding EINs:

You will probably have to change it w/ your State and local if you've already fiiled that. Most States won't allow duplicate business names, even if you're a Sole DBA.
