If the company I worked for sold to another owner, will the EIN be the same since I'll be receiving 2 W2's from the same company?

WAIT for the W-2 's and you will know.  Do NOT try to file using a pay stub.  Employers have until January 31 to issue your W-2.

 

Every 2019 W-2 that you received must be reported on your 2019 tax return, even if they are for small amounts.  Remember that each one of those W-2’s has your Social Security number on it, and that income was reported to the IRS by the employer.  You do not want to get in trouble with the IRS for under-reporting your income.

ALL of your W-2’s must be entered on the SAME tax return.  After you enter the first one, you click Add Another W-2.

When a company changes ownership they cannot transfer the Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the old owner to the new owner.
