Can I get an EIN without a business in Texas? I want an EIN to purchase wholesale items to resale to fund the start up of my business.
It is not necessary for you to have a business so that you can be given an EIN. The Employer Identification Number is usually given to anyone. However, you will be expected to pay some amount in taxes when you start up your business.
Perhaps if you have a business license. Talk to a cpa or a lawyer.
