Thank you for posting in the Community. I'd be happy to help share some insights on how to change the Federal Tax ID number of your payroll service.
It's important to have the correct the Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) in your account because it identifies your business when you submit your tax forms and payments to the IRS. It also used to validate your payroll service subscription.
Let me show you how to change your EIN:
For QuickBooks Desktop Payroll:
From the Company menu, select My Company.
In the COMPANY INFORMATION section, click the Pencil icon at the top right.
On the left pane, select the Company Identification tab.
In the Federal Employer Identification No. field, enter the new EIN.
When prompted, choose skip. This will take you to the Account Maintenance pages.
If asked, log in using your Intuit credentials.
Once logged in, update the EIN under Company Information section.
After that, I recommend reaching out to our payroll support to make sure you're service key is correct. However, if you set up direct deposit, you need to reach out to them directly to update the EIN for you.
At the top right, select your Payroll Subscription type.
Click on the View Contact Info button to get their contact number.
For Online Payroll Subscription:
To start, if the electronic service is activated, you'll need to turn it off on your account to avoid any errors when changing the EIN. The following article contains the detailed steps: Update incorrect Federal EIN.
We have gone through the steps to update our EIN in Quickbooks Desktop and with the Intuit Payroll Service. The new EIN shows up everywhere except on the memo line of our Payroll Liability Check. How do we change it there?
