I am trying to file my returns and I am required to enter an EIN but I don't have an EIN. I only have a social security number. How can I solve this? Thank you.

Providing your Employer Identification Number (EIN) from your W-2 allows us to identify the easiest way for you to enter your W-2 form (you also need it to e-file).

The best place to look is in Box b of your W-2 form, located right above or below your employer's name and address.

Your EIN will be a 9-digit number with a dash after the second digit (example: 00-0000000). Keep in mind, an EIN is not the same thing as an Employer’s State ID number or your Employee Number.

For more information on correcting your EIN, please see the TurboTax FAQ below:
