Are you a new Minnesota business owner? Do you need to obtain your state and federal tax ID numbers? If so, this website will help walk you through the process.
State (Minnesota) Tax ID Number:
Most new businesses incorporated in the State of Minnesota will need to obtain a Minnesota state tax ID number soon after the business is formed. For example, a Minnesota tax ID number is required if the business performs taxable services; withholds income taxes from employee's wages; is required to make estimated business tax payments; or files a Minnesota S Corporation or partnership tax return.

Generally, Minnesota businesses need an EIN. You may apply for an EIN in various ways, and now you may apply online. This is a free service offered by the Internal Revenue Service.
