Where do we find Quick books EIN number

It is not a QuickBooks number, it is an EIN (or Employment Identification number).  An employer identification number (EIN) is a nine-digit number assigned by the IRS. It is used to identify the tax accounts of employers and certain others who have no employees. The IRS uses the number to identify taxpayers who are required to file various business tax returns. 

In Quickbooks it is sometimes listed under Company>my company but only if someone put it in there. You can also search for a past payroll tax return to find that number.

In QuickBooks Mac you access the EIN field by choosing QuickBooks->Preferences and then clicking on the My Company icon.  The field is labeled "Federal ID:"  However as Lynda said the actual number will only be there if you entered it (typically during creation of the company file).

I'll provide an answer to your question, @EPF

 

A state Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a number assigned by your state agency. This allows you to track your payroll tax liabilities and unemployment insurance liability. 

 

To help you get this number, I'd suggest either going to the state website or contacting your state agency. Before you register for any state EIN, you'll first need a federal EIN. Once you have it, you can add it in the program. Here's how: 

  1. Go to Lists from the top menu. 
  2. Choose Payroll Item List.
  3. Double-click the payroll item and then click Next
  4. Enter the State ID number in the Enter the number that identifies you to agency window. 
  5. Click Next until you can click Finish

 

For more detailed steps, go through this article: Add Company's State Account Number

 

Once done, you can create paychecks for your employees. You can also enroll e-services through the program. This allows you to e-pay and e-file your state tax forms together in QuickBooks. 

 

I'll be right here to help if you need anything else. Have a great day, @EPF

What the business is not located in the US and we don't pay tax as it is done in the US? Take Federated States of Micronesia for instance.

Hi fsm02122020,

 

QuickBooks Desktop Payroll is only designed for the U.S, U.K, and Canada. This is why you're unable to run payroll in the program.

 

You'll want to do your payroll manually. Before doing so, please make sure that your computer is offline or is not connected to the internet. Then, follow these steps to set up the preferences:

 

  1. Go to Edit Preferences.
  2. Select Payroll & Employees and click the Company Preferences tab.
  3. In the QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Features section, select the Full Payroll radio button.
  4. Select OK.

Here's a sample screenshot for a visual guide:

 

 

Once done, you can now create the manual payroll. I've got this article for reference: Set up payroll without a subscription.

 

Please reach out to me if you need anything else. Thanks.
