The IRS has announced there will be changes to the process to issue employer identification numbers beginning on May 13 in New Release IR 2019-58. The IRS indicated these change are meant to enhance security.
Entities will no longer be able to use their own EIN as the identification number for the responsible party and the change will apply to both EINs obtained online and via filing a paper Form SS-4. The release describes the responsible person as follows:
Generally, the responsible party is the person who ultimately owns or controls the entity or who exercises ultimate effective control over the entity. In cases where more than one person meets that definition, the entity may decide which individual should be the responsible party.
