What is an EIN error 101?

This article details what an EIN error 101 is and how ZenBusiness will help if it happens to you.

Updated over a week ago

An EIN Error 101 means that the IRS found another entity with the same name as your business. If an Error 101 results from your EIN submission, you will need to re-file for your EIN with a form SS-4.

If you receive an Error 101 when you file through ZenBusiness, we will help you with your preparing the SS-4 form.

The SS-4 process can often average to about 4-8 weeks, and the IRS will typically send your EIN Assignment Letter directly to you.
